METHOD:



1.       Wash the varai rice, add 2 cups water to it and pressure cook till soft and all the moisture is absorbed.

2.       Remove and allow to cool completely.



3.       Crush coarse the chillies, ginger and jeera.




4.       To the rice add the ground chillies, potato, peanut powder, and salt.



5.       Mix and mash it all together.


6.       Make small lemon sized balls and shape them into tikkis.

7.       Dust them with the rajgeera flour from outside and roll again.




8.       Heat oil, deep fry the tikkis till golden brown all over.



9.       Remove from oil and immediately drop them in a bowl of warm water.

10.   Remove after 20 seconds and lightly press them on a kitchen tissue to remove excess water.



11.   Fry all the remaining vadas and continue steps 8 to 10 for all.



12.   Beat the curd till smooth. Add in sugar and salt to taste. If the curd is too thick add in a few tbsp. of water. It should be pourable.

13.   You can increase or decrease the amount of sugar as per your taste. I don’t like it too sweet.


14.   Sprinkle in a little coriander leaves and allow the curd to chill.




15.   Arrange the vadas on a serving plate. Pour over the curd.



16.   Sprinkle on top a little of chilli pdr, black salt and jeera pdr. Also add on the remaining coriander leaves and serve chilled.
