Monday, May 10, 2010
So I  made Masala Vadas the other day... I had some of them left.So i made Masala vada pulusu which is made using tamarind sauce. It s simple and delicious. You should try it out :)

You will need :

Masala Vadas - 5
Onions - 2 finely chopped
Tamarind - big lemon sized soaked in water and juiced(or more if you like it sour)
Green chillies - 4 big ones chopped finely
Curry Leaves
Ginger garlic paste - 2tsp
Cumin powder - 1tsp
Corriander powder - 1tsp
Red chilli powder 
Turmeric Powder
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1tsp
Fenugreek Seeds - 1/2tsp
Dry red Chillies - 2-3
Cilantro
Salt
Oil

This is how you do it :

1. Heat oil in a kadai.Add mustard seeds(let them splutter) Red chillies and Cumin Seeds
2. Add the chopped Onions and fry till they are light brown.
3. Add the chopped green chillies and curry leaves and fry.
4. Add turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste and fry for about 2-3 min or till the raw smell is gone.
5. Add some water and mix well.
6. Add Cumin powder, corriander powder, chilli powder and salt and mix well.
7. Pour in the tamarind juice and mix well and let it cook for abot 10-15 min on a low flame.
5. Add the vadas and cook for another 5 min.
6. Garnish with cilantro .


This tastes good with hot rice.I love it as a side for dosas too :)


P.S : Vadas in this recipe can be replaced with any other vegetables like the drumstick, okra or even egg :)
