Medhu vadai or Ulundu vadai is a South Indian popular breakfast item which also comes under healthy snack dishes. Uddina vada as called in Karnataka this Medu Vada is a favorite breakfast for many all over India and Srilanka. This Medhu vadai is usually made in doughnut-shaped to allow heat in the middle of the Vada batter for even frying of all the sides. But if you are a beginner and not confident enough to make such doughnut shapes, then you can simply make small vadas instead of bigger holed ones.
Tips/Notes: 1. Do not soak urad Dal for more than two hours. 2. Use whole urad Dal always to make Medhu vadai. 3. If in case your batter turns out into watery while grinding add a tbsp of rice flour extra to achieve correct consistency of the batter. 4. If the batter is not thick then Vada will drink more oil. 5. You can add pepper powder instead of whole pepper for a spicy Vada.
