Onion Vada / Ulli vada


It may sound childish but believe it or not I was a person who was scared of deep frying things just because I was simply scared of hot oils :) But  gradually I am overcoming that fear and has started deep frying things on my own  but with all precautions ! I always use a spoon to put things in hot oil and also while taking things out from hot oil, I use 2 spoons ,one for taking it out  and other one  to protect the thing from falling back in :) Sounds crazy right ?

Anyway coming to today's post, its a precious deep fried onion vada which I made few days before when a blogger friend of mine visited my place with her hubby.Perfect to munch on a rainy day with hot cup of masala tea !

Ingredients

Onions - 2 medium
Green chillies -1(chopped)
Curry leaves - few( torn into small pieces)
Besan/ Chick pea flour - 3/4 cup
Rice flour - 2 tbs
Fennel seeds - 1/4 tsp
Redchilly powder - 1tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/8 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Salt
Water - as required

Method

1.Slice onion  as thinly as possible and keep it aside.
2.Add all the other ingredients to it and add little water and shape them into circles.
3.Deep fry them in hot oil until golden brown.

Vineetha...you won't believe me, I do the same thing, use 2 spoons for deep frying...kind of crazy right? I wish for some vadas...they look soo crispy and delicious.

instead of kadala maavu, use maida...it tastes better, or the least, it is so to my palate. It wouldn't be crunchy but spongy.
