Bread slices- 8
Rava/Sooji- 3 tbs
Rice flour- 2 tbs
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp (optional)
Asafoetida/Hing- a pinch
Yogurt -1/2 cup
Pearl Onions- 4-5
Ginger finely chopped- 1 inch thick
Curry leaves finely chopped- 1 spring
Green chilly finely chopped- 3
salt to taste
Oil- 2 cup to fry
In a food processor pulse the bread till it becomes a course mixture. Transfer this into a bowl and add the rice flour,rava, salt, chilly powder and hing(asafoetida) and mix well.
Into this add the yogurt and mix. Adjust consistency by adding little water. Do not add too much water,just enough to moist the bread crumbs, so that it holds shape.
Add chopped pearl onions,ginger, green chilly and curry leaves.
Drop a small portion of the vada mixture to check the oil. If it sizzles then the oil is ready to fry.
Take a small bowl of water and wet your hands first. Take a lemon sized portion of the bread mixture and shaped into a ball and then press a finger in through the middle to make a depression in the center.
Drop into hot oil and fry in medium flame till both sides turns golden brown. Drain and place on paper towels to take off the excess oil. Serve with chutney or ketchup.
Hope you will all enjoy!
