Carrot & Corn Medhu Vadas

I cant imagine my festive foods without medhu vadas, usually we make urad dal medhu vadas. But for this time, for pongal celebration i prepared this medhu vadas with sweet corn kernels and grated carrots. Actually i freezed two months back, fresh sweet corn kernels and i simply used it for making this crispy beauties.

If you dont have fresh sweet corn kernels,you can go very well with the canned ones. With loads of finely chopped onions and grated carrots;these vadas tastes marvellous. Both onions and carrots gives a wonderful texture and flavour to this medhu vadas. We just loved this different medhu vadas when served with tomato pappu. If you making medhu vadas next time,do give a try to this wonderful looking vadas.Sending to Swathi's Favourite Recipes Event - Lentils.



2cups Urad dal
1/2cup Sweet corn kernels
1cup Onions(finely chopped)
3nos Green chillies(chopped)
1/2cup Carrots (grated)
1tsp Fennel seeds (crushed)
Few Curry leaves
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,grated carrots,chopped green chillies, chopped ginger pieces,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!!
