Miriyala Minapa Vadalu

Vada is a famous tasty snack item from South India which is prepared with the paste made by various types of Dal (pulses). They can be prepared in many ways. The vada made from Black gram (Urad dal) is known as 'Minapa Garelu" in Andhra.  Here's a simple Urad dal vada recipe with a little twist from Hema's Kitchen. I've replaced black gram with whole black gram and added pepper to it for extra taste.
Ingredients

Whole black gram dal (pottu minapapappu) :2 cups
Miriyalu (black pepper corns) : 1 table spoon
Oil : for deep fry
Salt to taste

Method

Wash whole black gram dal thoroughly for 3 to 4 times and soak for 5 hours.
Grind the soaked black gram along with black pepper in to tight paste by adding little water at a time. Add salt into above ground paste and mix well.
Heat oil in a deep bottomed pan.
Now take either a small piece of  plantain leaf or a plastic sheet wet it with little water
Spread the ground paste in a round shape on plantain leaf or plastic sheet.
Make a hole in the middle as shown in the picture and gently drop it in to the hot oil.
Fry the vadas on low flame till they turn in to golden brown in color.
Serve hot with coconut chutney or sauce.
