Medhu Vadai | Ulundhu Vadai | Indian Lentil Fritters

Have to admit..I was not allowed to prepare dishes like this when I was learning to cook.My Mom was worried that I would get hurt..I follow that trend even now and my hubby does it all the time.I'm just a helper.Never disturb the experts..

 Medhu Vadai


Urid Dhal - 1 cup
Rice flour - 4 tsp
Onion - 1 No
Green Chilly - 3 No
Coriander and Curry Leaves
Salt - for taste
Oil for frying


  • Soak the Urid Dal for 1 - 1 1/2 hrs and Grind it to a thick consistency without adding much water
  • Finely chop onion,green chillies,coriander and curry leaves and mix with the batter
  • Add salt and rice flour and allow it to sit for 15min
  • Heat oil in a kadai/wok and take small balls of the the batter and make them into shapes as shown in pic and carefully place it in the oil.
  • Fry in medium flame until it turns golden brown.Place them on a tissue paper to remove excess oil
  • Serve with chatni or sambar.
My Notes

Also try by adding just pepper corns and chopped onion to the batter.
