Crispy Vadai

Ingredients:

Urad dal(Black gram beans ) 1 cup
Salt to taste
Green Chillies 3
Ginger 1/4"
Curry leaves 4-5
Oil for frying

Method :
Soak the Black gram beans for 10 minutes.

Drain the water and grind it in the blender with as little water as possible. When the batter is nice and smooth take it out of the blender, add salt, green chillies (chopped), ginger (grated) and curry leaves.

You can take a small piece of plastic wrap, sprinkle some water on top, and dip your fingers in a glass of water. Take a small ball of the batter, spread it on the wrap as a circle, poke a hole in the midddle.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a deep dish. Deep fry the circles we just made now.
