Then Vadai / Sweet Medu Vadai

Vadai is my favorite deep fried item.. So perfect for tiffin or for breakfast. This is the sweet cousin of the Spicy Medu Vadai. This gets its taste and sweetness from the honey added. You could add more honey if desired. I saw this in a TV show and loved it.. It will be in darker color compared to its spicy cousin due to its sugar content..



Urad Dal / Ulutham Parupu - 1 cup
Honey - 1/4 cup (adjust to taste)
Salt - A pinch
Oil - For Deep Frying


Soak the ulutham parupu for 2 hours
Drain excess water and grind it to a paste with a pinch of salt
Heat oil for frying in a pan
Add honey to the batter and beat with your hand. Make sure that the honey is completely incorporated
Add cardamom powder and nutmeg powder
Make vadai and deep fry until deep dark golden on medium flame
Remove once dark golden on both sides
Serve war‘
