  • 1 cup Semolina / Rava
  • 1/2 cup Onion
  • Handful Coriander leaves finely chopped
  • Handful Curry leaves
  • 2 to 3 Green Chili finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup Curds
  • Cooking Oil for deep frying
  • Water if required


  • Take the Rava in a bowl, add finely chop the onions, chilies and coriander leaves, curry leaves along with cumin seeds, soda, and salt.
  • Add curds and mix well. Now depending on how thick the batter is, sprinkle some water and mix well.
  • Let this sit for 30 mins. The batter is quite thick at this stage and you might have to add a few tsp of water later.
  • After 30 mins, heat the Kadai with oil.
  • Mix the batter again and check if it requires some water. So add few tsp and mix again.
  • Take a small ball, wet your palm, flatten the ball into thin discs and gently slide into the hot oil.
  • Cook on a medium flame until the vadas are cooked on both sides.
  • Drain on a kitchen towel and serve hot.
