I saw this recipe in one of the TV cookery programs and found it so simple and delicious. So i immediatly tried this and it came out very well. This doesnt workout for people who wants to diet as its a deep fried variety and consumes little more oil than the usual vadas.
Avalakki - Soft variety
Onion and green chillies - as required and cut into small pieces.
Oil for deep frying
Salt and chilli powder as required
Wash the Avalakki in water and drain the water nicely. Add the onions, chilli, curry leaves,salt and chilli powder to the avalakki and smash the avalakki with the other items nicely so that a nice consistency is formed.
Now heat oil in a kadai and make small balls in vadai shape and drop them into the oil slowly.
Once the vadai is done, remove from oil and keep it aside. Avalakki vadai is ready to be served now.
