Medu Vada

One of a favorite snacks or breakfast from South India is Medu Vada. This one is also quite healthy because it is made with Urad Dal. And you need few limited ingredients only. With any chutney this vada is perfect for breakfast.

In Chennai & Hyderabad most of the people’s daily breakfast is this Medu Vada’s. We were in Chennai for 4 month and that time I used to have this one from my neighbor lady. She only tought me how to make proper Medu Vada. Sometime I love to have Vada with Tea also.

Preparation time: 15 mints.
Cooking time: 10 mints.


1.Urad Dal: 100 gm.
2.One large chopped onion.
3.Few chopped green chilies.
4.Few curry leaves.
5.One inch ginger.
6.Salt & Sugar as per taste.
7.One table spoon purpose flower (this one is optional but I love to add, taste will be same only).
8.Sunflower Oil for frying.

Soak urad dal in water for few hours.
Now grind it in a mixture with the ginger, and don’t add lots of water.

Now add chopped onion, chopped green chili and curry leaves into the batter with some salt and sugar.

Now make some small balls with the batter and make a hole with your thumb in the centre.
Fry the Vada’s in enough oil till they become golden and crispy.


Enjoy your vada with Coconut chutney or any  other chutney
