Corn Medhu Vada

Am back friends, after a month break its a real pleasure to post a fabulous crispy snacks which i prepared before leaving to India...We had a fabulous vacation in India,enjoyed many wonderful yummy dishes even we had a excellent Haleem at Hyderabad..We couldnt stop buying and enjoying many street foods, we just loved it..Coming to this medhu vada, i prepared a batter using sweet corn and urad dal for making this wonderful looking crispy medhu vadas,serve it with spicy coconut chutney you will definitely love this mildly sweet vadas...We loved this vadas as rasa vadas, soak these vadas for few minutes in tangy tomato rasam, you will definitely love this fantastic vadas..This vadas can be prepared either as dahi vadas or else as sambar vadas,you have numerous choices to enjoy this incredible vadas..


2cups Urad dal
1/2cup Sweet corn kernels
1cup Onions(finely chopped)
3nos Green chillies(chopped)
1tsp Fennel seeds (crushed)
Few Curry leaves(chopped)
Few Coriander leaves (chopped)
1tsp Ginger (chopped)
Salt as per taste
Oil for deepfrying


Soak the urad dal for an hour before grinding, grind both urad dal and sweet corns without water,add the salt to the urad dal and sweet corn mixture,this help the dals to grind together well, now add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies, chopped ginger pieces, chopped curry leaves,crushed fennel seeds and chopped coriander leaves..mix everything well with your fingers..

Heat oil for deepfrying, take a small ball from the corn medhu vada batter, flatten them with ur fingers, drop gently one by one to the hot oil..deep fry the vadas until they turn brown, fry everything as small batches, drain the excess of oil with a paper towel..

Serve hot with spicy chutney!!
