Vegetable Medhu vadai recipe | Vada recipe

No onion no garlic recipes

Urad dal vadai with the addition of vegetables. Generally for festivals we make ulundu vadai but we never add onions to this, while offering to God. During Ganesha chaturthi i made medhu vadai with the addition of cabbage, carrot and capsicum. The bright colour of the vada gained more attention and many readers in Instagram and facebook asked me about that. So i thought i will share this vegetable medhu vada recipe, as you can try during navaratri. Check out my ulundu vadai post with video for more details on how to shape the vada.

Notes:
  1. If using mixie for grinding the urad dal use the pulse option .
  2. For more quantity always use grinder else the heat generated while grinding in the mixie will not make the vadis fluffy.
  3. Always grind the batter smoothly into a fine paste.
  4. Do not soak urad dal for more than 2 hours , else the vadais will drink too much of water.
  5. After adding the vegetables the batter will loosen, so ensure that the batter is thick.
  6. If by any chance the batter turns watery just add a tblsp of rice flour.
  7. You can make the same with paruppu vadai too.
  8. Ensure the veggies are very finely chopped. You can add red capsicum too to get nice colour for the vegetable medhu vada.
