H- Horsegram Vadai

Wow, 8 days done in this marathon. I'm pretty pleased with myself with my recipes and blogging. I know that you must be hearing a lot about my grandmother and her influence on my cooking. Here is another blast from the past. She never lets any vegetable cooked go waste. It will promptly be convereted into another dish, which you cannot obviously figure out. So i guess it was during one navrathri that she had made kolu sundal. The next day morning, this vadai was made. I liked it very much and did not even think of asking what was it made of.

Later during the day, I came to know that is was made with horsegram. AWWW... was awestruck. Learnt from that lady that you should not waste food and through your knowledge you can create your own recipe. So here goes the best of excess food recipe/ Horsegram Vadai 


Horsegram - 1cup
Onions - 1 nos
Curry leaves - a few
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste


Soak the horsegram overnight after washing it for three or four times
Finely chop the onions and green chillies 
In the blender, take the soaked horsegram and pulse it two or three times.
It should be a coarse mixture like what we do for a masala vadai. 
Take this in a bowl.
Add finely chopped onions and chillies.
Adjust salt, mix well.
Make small patties and deep fry them in hot oil
Serve with sauce or coconut chutney
