First of all, my apologies for disappearing from the blogging scene. I fell sick and was totally bed ridden for the last few days. Now things are falling back to place and hope to cook some good food and also blog about it. I have been wanting to try so many recipe for kids as they are having their holidays and then some for Christmas. Lets see how much I can manage in the next few days as my pace has really slowed down for now.
Apart from all this miseries, finally we had a fun day yesterday after a long time. We and a few friends had a potluck dinner and also a vegetarian barbeque. It was the first time I have been for a BBQ as it was non vegetarian most of the times previously. And as it was exclusively vegetarian this time , we decided to join. We loved it and I will tell you the story about it sometime later in my future posts.
Well about this snack, I found this recipe in my old recipe files. Actually someone had send me around 200 recipes in my email some 10 years back. I was recently going through it and found the recipe in it. I have never known the source of this recipes.
It was crisp and delicious. I had kept a few for the night and they became a little soggy and were not as tasty when hot. So it’s important to serve them immediately,
Combine the vermicelli and curd. Mix well and keep it for 1 hour.
Combine dried red chillies, ginger and garlic ,cloves. Grind it to a fine paste. Add it to the vermicelli curd mixture.
Add the chopped onions, curry leaves ,coriander leaves and salt. Mix well.
Heat the oil for deep frying. Make small balls with the mixture. Gently put in hot oil and fry till they are golden brown.
Serve immediately with some green chutney or some tomato ketchup.
1. This snack should be served hot. When it cool downs , it becomes soggy.
2. I loved the flavor of cloves in the vadas, while my husband did not like it. So add accordingly and only if you wish.
3. The original recipe asks for around 8 red chillies. I added only 3 as my kids cant take too much heat.
