thavala-vadai-recipe
This thavala vadai recipe is also one of the recipe my In-laws shared me, they saw this recipe in a cookery show by Mrs. Revathi Shanmugam. Before going to the recipe, I disclaim, this may not be a traditional recipe and it is no related to the “Thavala Adai” , this is “thavala VADAI recipe” Happy. Most of the recipes has only rice and mixture of dal, but this recipe has sago in it, which I liked the best in this vadai. One more thing that tasted out of world was the coconut bits that came here and there. On the whole I love love loved it and enjoyed eating it a lot. It dint drink much oil too. A great tea time snack. That too you can win elder’s heart if you make this for them as snack Big Grin.
   You can make this in a short cut way too. Do you have left over Adai batter? Then you can soak sago for 2 hours and add it to the adai batter and make this one. Cool right? Now on to this simple recipe, packed with protiens/ dals!

  4. Cook in medium flame until golden in colour(flip once and cook both sides). Drain in paper towel.4-thavala

Notes

  • You can add ginger while grinding for extra flavour.
  • Sago can be medium sized ones.
  • If you do it with adai batter, make sure the batter is thick.
  • Grinding the dal coarsely gives a nice texture to the vadai.

You can serve it with coconut chutney, but believe me, it is great as such as it has coconut in it. Unbelievable delicious!

  16. Make it slightly differently. Sago is not added. And the batter is semi-solid and poured into the oil to form a round vada in the oil. Follow the Samaitha Paar recipe. This is simpler and am sure as tasty/tastier and less greasy too.
