Beetroot Vadai

I had to try this recipe inorder to give my daughter some snacks made with beetroot to her school. I thought she would prefer vadai with sauce and so i went for this. The vadai came out really well and i am sure children would love it.

Items required:
Channa dal (kadalai paruppu) - 2 cups
Onion - chopped
Green chilly - 4 or 5 based on the taste
Beetroot - 1 small one, peeled and grated
Oil - for deep frying
salt as required.


Soak channa dhal for a min of 2 hrs. Now grind the soaked channa dhal, green chilly, salt and a pinch of hing to a course paste. Make sure the ground paste is not too smooth. It has to be coursely ground. Now remove it from mixie jar and add the chopped onion and grated beetroot to the paste.

Keep oil in a kadai and make small flat balls from the vadai paste and slowly put it in the oil.

Once the vadai turns golden brown, remove it from oil and keep it aside. Serve it with chutney or with sauce
