Carrot Vadas

Carrot Vadas

These are instant vadas with no grinding or no soaking. And this is a little healthy snack as carrot was added to the flour. I made these on Ganesh Chathurthi day.

Here is the recipe:

  • 4 cups Grated Carrot
  • 3 cups Chickpea Flour (Senagapindi, Besan)
  • 1 cup Powdered Peanuts/Groundnuts (roasted or raw)
  • ½ cup Grated Coconut (fresh or dry)
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • A handful of Cilantro, chopped finely
  • A small piece of Ginger, skin peeled and chopped finely
  • Chopped Green Chilies or Chili Powder, as needed (I added 6 green chilies)
  • A pinch of Soda
  • Salt as needed
  • Oil to deep fry
  1. Add all the ingredients (except oil) in a bowl and mix together to make thick dough using very little water. Keep aside.
  2. Pour oil in a deep skillet and heat. When it becomes hot, take small batches of the dough, shape into a small circle and drop carefully into the hot oil.
  3. When they become cooked and change color, remove from the hot oil and place on a plate covered with paper towel.
  4. Let them cool for some time and eat the yummy vadas.
  5. Repeat the same process with remaining dough/batter.
  6. Enjoy these yummy vadas any time of the day.
  7. Yummy!!

I just made your radish chutney. Fabulous. I am now going to make these carrot vada but with radishes (since I had a big radish crop this year). I'll blog about it on my blog, http://www.projectparatha.blogspot.com/. Just discovered your site. Love the bold way you cook.
