Exploring the world of delicious Indian snacks and today's star is the crispy and fluffy Medu Vada. This south Indian delicacy is a popular breakfast item that is made from White lentils shaped into doughnuts and deep-fried to perfection. With its unique texture and irresistible flavor, Medu Vada is sure to tantalize your taste buds and leave you craving for more. So, let's get started and learn how to make this delectable snack right in your kitchen.


Ingredients for Medu Vada :

1 cup White lentils

2 tbsp Rice flakes

½ chopped onion

2-3 green chillies



  1.       We take 1 cup of white lentils in a bowl and add 2 tbsp of rice flakes. We rinse them properly with water
  2.       Once we have rinsed them with water, we add 2 cups of water and let it soak for 2 hours
  3.       After 2 hours we will take the soaked lentils and make a fine paste of that.
  4.       To this paste we add ½ chopped onion and some chopped green chillies.
  5.       Add some salt according to taste and mix it all well together.
  6.       This batter is ready to be fried into vada.
  7.       We take oil in a Allo wok and add round shaped small dough balls into the oil. Usually the shape of a vada is like a doughnut, but I also like such bite size round shaped vadas.
  8.       Once they are golden brown we remove them from the oil and serve it hot with dips and chutneys.

Ingredients Coconut Chutney:

Thinly sliced or grated coconut

2 tbsp roasted chickpeas

Green Chillies

  3. We add some water and blend it into a fine chutney.
  4. Coconut chutney is ready. If needed, you can add a tadka of mustard        seeds, dried red chillies and curry leaves.
