Green Gram Vadai


  • Green Gram – 1 cup
  • Green Chilli – 1 or 2
  • Fresh Ginger – a small piece
  • Onion chopped – two to three tablespoons
  • Asafetida Powder – two pinches
  • Salt – ½ teaspoon or as per taste
  • Oil – for deep frying


  1. Soak green gram for about 5 to 6 hours. Wash well and drain the excess water. Grind it along with green chilli, ginger (chop and add) and salt to a coarse paste. No need to add any water. Remove and add asafetida powder and chopped onion. Mix well.
  2. Heat oil in a kadai. Keep the stove in medium heat. Take a small lemon size dough and flatten it slightly. Put it in the hot oil and fry till it turns golden brown.
  3. Serve with any chutney or with Tomato Ketchup.
  4. Note: If you want more spicy vadai, then add two pinches of red chilli powder or one teaspoon of black pepper and cumin (coarsely powdered) in the dough.
