Mooli vadai aka radish vadai

We had written about the radish as a weekend herb few weeks ago. Here is the link for more details. We made vadai using white radish today. Find below the pictures and recipe details.

Bringing the ingredients together ...

Mooli vadai aka radish vadai recipe

Radish – 2 cups, washed, scrubbed, and shredded
Salt – ¾ teaspoon
Puffed bengal-gram dal – 1 cup, coarsely grounded
Onions – 2, finely chopped
Green chillies – 2, large size, finely chopped
Coriander leaves – a small bunch
Cloves – 2, ground to a smooth powder
Cinnamon – 1-inch stick, ground to a smooth powder
Oil - for deep-frying

Method: Rinse the radish shreds in warm water, and squeeze it out. Knead all the ingredients well to a dough firm enough to pat into vadais. Sprinkle few drops of water only if needed to bind the mixture together. Form the dough into small round flat circles and deep fry in smoking hot oil to an attractive deep brown color. Serve hot with a piping hot cup of masala tea. Enjoy!

Hey VKN... I never liked raddish. But looking at these mouth-watering vadais... I am sure .. I will buy them at my next grocery. Something that I am surely gonna try it out. Can these be shallow fried too???

I too had the aversion to radish as a kid many years ago; later realized it is one of the powerhouse of many vitamins. Hope you will let us know how it turned out at your home.
