As I said in my previous posts I planned to share snacks and soup recipes in this cold winter..

Every South Indian’s favorite savory snack , traditional and authentic recipe is Vada / Savory donut which is made with any soaked lentils dough along with spices such as ginger and green chillies paste, cumin seeds, onion and coriander leaves.. ingredients might vary from one to another ( lentils savory donut/ Vadalu ) but any savory donut ( Vada ) tastes amazing and delicious πŸ˜‹

I like to have them with any dip or spicy side dish like Chutney or pickle ( Indian pickle ) you can checkout my Chutney and avacado dip in below links

And another way You can also enjoy Vada ( Savory Donut ) by soaking them inΒ Tomato πŸ… Pepper Rasam/ Miriyala Charu || Lunch Recipe|| South Indian StyleΒ or Sambar / spiced buttermilk Β with tempering.. will share these two in my upcoming posts…

Today I prepared Black eyed beans savory donut it’s tastes great and obviously my favorite too πŸ™‚

Who doesn’t tasted or never tried my suggestion is to make them and enjoy as evening snack/ Winter treat.. I’m sure you definitely like them.

Soaking time : 8 hrs Β  Β Making VadaΒ Duration: 20 minsΒ 

Let’s start with Ingredients and follows Procedure

Ingredients:

  • Black eyed beans/ Alasandalu – 350 gms – soaked
  • Green chillies paste – 1 tb sp
  • Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Salt – 1 1/2 tsp
  • Onion – 80 gms – finely chopped
  • Coriander leaves – 1/3 cup – finely chopped
  • Baking soda – 1/2 tsp
  • Oil – to deep fry

Procedure:

Prepreparation:

  • Wash black eyed beans twice with sufficient water
  • Strain water and add fresh water (2 ltrs)
  • Soak them upto 8 hrs in water
  • When you are ready to make Vada ( savory donut ) drain water and remove excess water by using paper towel/ kitchen towel

Process of making Alasanda vadalu :

  • In a mixer blender add black eyed beans along with cumin seeds.
  • Blend coarsely and make sure to remain few chunks ( don’t add water )
  • Take out blended paste in a bowl
  • Add salt, baking soda, green chillies paste, onion and coriander
  • Mix well till combined
  • Heat oil to deep fry over medium
  • Take a wrapper/ wax paper
  • Apply little oil and Take lemon size dough
  • Place it on wrapper & form circle shape by tapping with fingers
  • Slowly flip pressed Vada in your hand and gently drop in hot oil ( be careful at this step )
  • I added 4 savory donut in one batch ( it might vary the deep frying pan and oil you have used, check and make accordingly.. more or less Vada in one batch)
  • Flip and cook both sides till golden brown
  • Repeat the same process till dough completes
  • Enjoy these hot and crispy alasanda vadalu with roughly chopped onion or any spicy chutneyΒ Spicy Ginger Chutney/ Allam pachadi
  • Serve hot and enjoy during winter/ rainy/ festival time
  • Happy cooking and enjoy your day πŸ™‚

Note:

  • Adjust spices according to taste
  • Usually it makes with split black eyed beans, you can use them if you could find them in your area instead of full beans
  • Instead of blending in mixer grinder you could use wet grinder for best results
  • You can also add ginger paste along with other ingredients
  • Please be careful While dropping Vadalu ( Savory Donut ) in oil

    I did not know that you could make vadas with black-eyed beans! You’re absolutely right that vada tastes heavenly with tomato/pepper rasam, sambar,or butter-milk! Can’t resist this combination!
