Vada Curry (SNC challenge 4)

Hi Friends,
  Back with a bang in the SNC challenge... Last time couldn't able to participate for some reason sorry for that. Didn't bag any badge too, very sad.
But I am happy that I completed my this month challenge :-)

Vada Curry recipe is a famous South Indian Curry served with Idli or Dosa. 
The recipe was given as a challenge by Southern Team posted by Ramya in her blog. Click HERE for more info.

And from Northern Team it was Rajasthani Ghevar with Kesar Rabdi posted by Majula Bharath (Our new SNC QUEEN) in her blog. For more info click HERE.

I tried making VADA CURRY, did little variations by adding few more stuff. Boys guess what it became a huge hit at my home. Here is the recipe for you all :-)


For making Vadas:
1 cup bengal gram 
1/2 tbsp fennel seeds 
1-2 green chilies (finely chopped)
4 cloves of garlic 
(finely chopped)
2 tbsp fresh coriander (finely chopped)
2 tbsp mint leaves (finely chopped)
1 small onion (finely chopped)
Salt taste
Oil for frying

For Gravy:
1 medium size onion 
2 tomatoes (pureed)

Few fresh coriander 
1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
2 tbsp curd (well beaten)
1/4 tsp chilly Powder
1/2 tbsp garam Masala 
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder 
Salt taste 
Water for gravy

Oil - 3 tbsp
Mustard seeds- 1tbsp
Fennel seeds - 1 tbsp
Cinnamon - 1 stick

  • Soak Bengal gram for 30 minutes, grind and make coarse paste. 

  • Add chopped coriander and mint leaves, onion, green chilies and salt. Mix well.

  • Divide the mixture into equal potions. Make vadas with the help of wet palms.
  • Meanwhile heat oil in a kadhai for deep frying.

  • Add vadas one by one in the hot oil. Deep fry till vadas become golden brown in colour.

  • Grind onion and coriander leaves to make paste. Keep it aside.

  • Heat oil in the pan and add fennel seeds,mustard seeds,cinnamon to it.
  • After that add onion-coriander paste, ginger- garlic paste and saute till oil separates.
  • Add curd and cook again.

  • Now add tomatoes and cook till oil separates.
  • Add turmeric powder, chilly powder and garam masala along with salt.
  • Add water to get gravy.
  • Bring a boil and keep it on low flame for 5-10 mins. Remove from fire.

Note: Add crumbled vadas in the gravy before serving.
