Urad dal wada / uddina wade
Written by Jayashree
Published on December 20, 2014

Urad dal wada are tasty and loved by all. It is usually served along  with idli in restaurants. It is one of the essentials of South Indian breakfast. 

Urad dal is soaked and then made into a thick batter, seasoned with spices and then deep fried in oil. Shaped like doughnuts, these have always been my favourite. With or without chutney, I love these fried dumplings. Today, a sneak and peek at this one.

This is vegan and gluten free snack, ideal for breakfast along with idly or as an accompaniment with any meal. It is tasty and one cannot  resist having a couple of them. It is usually served with coconut chutney but one can dunk them in sambar or thick curd, it tastes awesome.

This is an old post which I had written when I started my blog. Now, the post is redesigned with new picture and content, looking back there is a phenomenal change in the pictures and the way of writing. Well, that’s life, we try to get better each day isn’t it? And this post is part of the new group that I have joined Foodies_Redoing Old Posts started by Renu. The purpose is to give a new face to the old posts that we had written long back.

    I love wada and that’s what I have for breakfast or dinner whenever I’m in India. I tried making them with my hand with the hole in the middle and found it difficult. But as you said the key word is practise.
