Medu Vada | Black Gram Fritters

Medu vada is a popular south Indian breakfast made with urad dal batter flavoured with spices like ginger, fenugreek seeds etc and deep fried in oil. It is usually served warm with sambar and coconut chutney or at room temperature with yogurt, popularly known as Dahi vada. This vada recipe is slightly different from traditional one, generally curry leaves, fenugreek seeds, green chillies etc. are also added, but the one here is basic, simple and gives crispy exterior and soft interior. So, let’s begin.
