Happy Ganesh Chaturthi

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi

ishing Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all. We do not celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi :-( but I used to have fun with all the neighbours celebration and ofcourse the festive delights we get to eat :-) and the Visarjan was always use to be highlight. In Chennai there will be so many huge Ganesh Idols installed along the roads and we use to walk over so many places to check the different kinds of Idols. How I wish we can have the same joy here in SG too :-(.

Coming back to today's post since we do not celebrate this festival and I still want to send something for Purva's
Ganesh Chaturthi event so sending Vada as there has be vada in the festive food list in all Tamil Nade or lets say Chennai homes :-)


Urad dal/ black gram - 2 cups
Cumin seeds - 1tbs
Green chilli - 5-6
Black pepper - 10 no.
Ginger - a small piece or 1/2tbs grated
Oil - to deep fry
Salt - to taste

1. Wash and soak the dal over night or 4-5 hours.
2. Grind the dal with cumins, green chilli, pepper, ginger with very little water. (Try not to add any water)
3. Heat Oil in pan, meanwhile take small portion of the dal paste and mix required salt. Give the desire shape and deep fry them until golden brown in medium flame.
4. Yummy vadas are ready.
Tip: I always add salt to dal paste in small portions otherwise the salt start leaving water and the dal paste becomes sloggy becomes difficult to deep fry and observe lot of oil.
This is the traditional way of making vada in our me. If you want add chopped onion, curry leaves, green chili in the dal paste and then deep fry them. They taste yummy too.

So the Vada goes to Purva's Krishna and Ganesh Chaturthi event.

On different note, our fellow blogger has been very kind and showered so many awards on me. I'm yet to put them up ...sorry friends for the delay but I'm starting doing from today :)
