Plain Ulundu vadai and Kongu special

    Plain ulundu vadai –  I named so because there is a sweet and spice version of this vadai. In our home we usually make What I am sharing here.
   We will have this with banana and sugar. This is our kongunadu special.
 During summer holidays , we cousins will be in our grand parents home. My mom and chittes will make this vadai before lunch .  After  eating this we will skip lunch itself.
  From these just think about how tasty it will be. Lets move on to the recipe.
Requirements :
Ulundhu / Urad dhal – 2 cup
Oil for frying

Method :
 Wash and Soak the urad dhal for half an hour.
Drain the water completely and grind into a  thick batter.
Heat the oil in a kadai.
Take a small amount of batter and shape it with the fingers into a circle and make a hole in the center , the shape must be like donut.
Slide into the hot oil and deep fry till golden brown.
Repeat the same with the remaining batter.
Note :
To make small vadas , can use a spoon to drop the batter into hot oil.
Serving :
Ulundu vadai can be served with coconut chutney / sambar.
Kongu special :
As I had mentioned earlier in this post that I will be sharing how we will be having this plain vada in our home.
Requirements :
Plain ulundu vadai – 5 -6
Castor sugar – 1  tbs
Ghee – 1 tsp
Banana – 2

  I n the plate , mash the bananas well with your hand , add the vadais and split it into small pieces .
Add sugar and ghee , mix all together.
Have a mouthful , it will be very tasty.
Just give it a try and let me know.
