Bobby's Vaddee
I love vaddee and do you know how difficult it is to come by these delicious treats.
In temple the aunties are so stingy when they hand these out, its only 2 per person. it just tickles my tummy and they make them so small.
Now that I can make these beauties the aunties can keep their stash, I am bringing my own stash with me to temple next time.
Ingredients for the vaddee spices:
1 tsp jeera
3 dry chillies.
2 green chillies.
½tsp masala.
Grind all these spices together in a mixer.
Ingredients for the vaddee batter:
1 cup channa dhal.
½ cup pea dhal.
1 onion, finely chopped.
1 tbsp. fresh dhania, chopped.
¾ tsp small jeera.
½ tsp baking powder.
¾ tsp salt.
1 x mashed, bruised banana.
Soak the two dhal’s together in hot water over night.
Drain in a colander, but do not pat dry.
Grind the dhal till slightly course and set aside.
Add all the ingredients for the vaddee batter and 3 tsp of the vaddee spices.
Mix everything together nicely till everything is well combined.
Break off a small piece and roll into a ball.
Flatten slightly in the palm of your hand.
Deep fry in hot oil on a medium heat until golden brown.
Remove from the oil and drain on a paper towel.
