Thavala Vadai

Author: kittymatti / Labels:

This recipe is different from the thavala adai recipe I have already posted. Though the names look so similar, they are very very different.
I got this recipe from my granny olly (Janaki), who got it from her mom, pattuma (my great grandma).


1/2 cup raw rice
1/2 cup toor dal
1/2 cup channa dal
1/2 cup urad dal
3 tsp moong dal
4 red chillies
2 green chillies
3 tsp finely chopped coconut pieces
2 tsp oil for seasoning
1 tsp mustard seeds
2 sprigs curry leaves
4 tsp chopped coriander leaves
oil for deep frying

Soak raw rice, toor dal and channa dal, both the chillies together for 4 hours. Drain, grind them together to a coarse batter like adai, without adding water. Soak urad dal separately for 4 hrs. Drain and grind urad dal to a smooth batter without adding water. Soak moong dal for 1 hr. Mix the two batters, moong dal (whole) , salt, hing. Add coconut pieces, coriander leaves to the batter. Heat oil in kadai, splutter mustard seeds, curry leaves. Add this seasoning to the batter. Bring the batter to a idly batter consistency. Take a small ladleful (about 2-3 tbsp) of the batter and slip it in hot oil. Deep fry till golden brown on both sides,
serve with chutney/ ketchup...
