Avil Vadai/ Beaten Rice Vadai/ Poha Vada In 10 Minutes

Written By Srimathi Mani on Monday, April 16, 2012 | 11:08 PM


The weekend went by so fast. As they say, when you are having too much fun you don't know the time slip by you. This weekend, we invited our families to celebrate new years. I made ven pongal, gothsu and curd rice. Since it was a celebration, we decided to make a sweet and vadai to go along with the meal. Because we did not have a lot of time before everyone arrived, I was looking for a simple, fast and easy recipe.I was reminded of the conversation I had with my mother-in-law regarding avil vadai and decided to give it a try. It scored big among all kids and adults and I had to go back into the kitchen to make another batch on demand. I am sure you can make variations of this vadai and add all ingredients used in masal vadai and it would taste awesome.I was told that apart from using it as a snack, it can be made as prasadham for Krishna or during navaratri celebrations. 


Gadgets:

Frying Wok
Strainer
Colander
Paper Towel
Bowl
Measuring Cup and Spoon
Parchment Paper



Ingredients:
Makes 16 Vadai's
Oil - 2 cup
Avil/ Poha (Thick variety) - 2 cups
Water -1 cup to soak the Avil
Rice Flour - 3 tbsp
Asafoetida Powder - 1/8th tsp
Green Chillies - 1 thinly sliced ( add more for extra spice)
Curry Leaves - a few chopped
Cilantro - 3 tbsp chopped
Ginger - 2 tsp grated
Salt
Sour Cream - 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup water mixed or Yogurt - 3/4 cup ( personally, I like sour cream )


Preparation:

1. Soak the avil in water for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes heat the oil on medium high.






2. Add the soaked avil into the bowl and using your hands blend and squish the avil to make a wet mix. 






3. Add the salt, rice flour, asafetida, curry leaves, cilantro, green chillies, grated and give it a good mix.






4. Add sour cream/ yogurt and make into a dough, you must be able to make vadai's with it.






5. Roll out the dough into 16 equal balls and place them on the parchment paper. You can also skip this step and start frying.





6. Make vadai's and place them back on the parchment.






7. Fry the vadai until golden brown on both sides.






8.Serve them hot with any chutney of your choice.

  14. Srimathi,

    Rice poha vadai looks delicious. Nice recipe.

    Regarding the energy bars you can substituted with flax seed ( 1 tablespoon or grind flax seed with 3 tablespoon of water) and try that and let me know.

  23. I give this double A+. It all started with my sister calling and talking about vadai she was making. I instantly went to my kitchen and tried this recipe. Made about 9 of them coz I didnt know how it will sell in my household. I ate 6 and my husband had the rest. He asked if there was more and if I can make again. So made it a second time. This time I added some onion. It tasted good too... Good job.
