  1. Why my vadda are not proper cooked raw smell of dal.is coming ..i kept 15 mint after grinding

    • they have to be fried till golden and also on a medium flame. if even slightly uncooked from the center, then raw aroma of dal will come. so try to fry till nicely crisp and golden.

  2. Thanks!

  3. Hi,

    I have been following your posts for a month now. Must say, excellent work.

    Cooking is like a stress buster now, more so, because of the simplicity of your food recipes.

    Here, please tel me, if guests coming over, can i prepare the compete batter and leave it overnight? So as to just take it out from refrigeration, bring to room temperature and fry them when guests come!

    • thank you shweta. just grind and keep the batter in fridge. don’t leave the ground batter overnight in your kitchen at room temperature. urad dal when fermented gives a very weird smell to the batter. before frying let the batter come to room temperature and then fry.

  4. Hi

    Can we add rice flour to make it crispy?

    • divya, yes you can add.
