alasande kalu wade, black eyed beans fritters

Alasande kalu wade (black eyed beans) are one of the tastiest fritters.  It is also known as lobia and karamani. They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It’s the season of fresh black-eyed beans. Stir fry and sambar are the usual ones that I make using it. Fritters was on the to do list since a long time. Finally, I made it during the weekend. It was tasty and made a good treat.

You can make it with dried beans also if the fresh ones are not available. But, it should be soaked over night. For the fresh ones, I soaked for two hours.

  1. Very interesting dish. I make similar vadas with black chana. Now I will try with lobia too. I have not seen fresh lobia seeds in the market here, so will make it with dry lobia. Thanks for sharing.

Appreciate all your comments.
