Soy Bean Fritters (Soya Vadalu)

Soy Bean Fritters (Soya Vadalu)
A healthy and delicious snack

This is another delicacy I made during Sankranthi. These turned out so delicious and everyone at our home enjoyed them so much. 

Let's look at the recipe:

  • 4 cups Soy Beans
  • ½ cup Rice Flour (optional)
  • ¼ cup grated Coconut (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 small Onion, chopped fine
  • Few green Chilies, chopped fine
  • ½ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • A small piece of Ginger, peeled
  • Salt 
  • Oil to deep fry
  1. Wash and soak soy beans in plenty of water overnight.
  2. Then grind the beans into a fine paste along with coconut + ginger. Add little water if needed.
  3. The batter should be thick. If it becomes thin add rice flour (mine became little watery, so I added rice flour to the batter) and mix well. It is completely optional.
  4. Then add onion + green chilies + cumin seeds + salt to the prepared batter and mix well.
  5. Pour oil in a deep skillet and heat. Take small batches of the batter, shape into a thin circle and drop carefully into the hot oil.
  6. Deep fry them until they turn golden brown in color. Then remove the vadalu from oil and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  7. Repeat the same process with the remaining batter.
  8. Great tasting Soy Bean Fritters (Vadalu) are ready to be eaten!! Enjoy these delicious vadalu with desired dip/chutney.

@Narendra Rao,

Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, I think we can bake these vadas. I made baked pakoda previously, but I haven't tried baked vadas yet. I will try baking these vadas and post a recipe about it soon.
