Rava Wada


Rava wada is very simple, does not take in much oil, very tasty, a wonderful snack to have with tea or coffee. My Amma used to make this as a vadai for prasadam.It is my family’s favorite snack. . This is very delicious when you eat it hotor cold. The output is a very crunchy pakoda on the outside but chewy and soft on the inside. Can be eaten with or without chutney or sauce.

Ingredients:
Rava/Sooji – 1 ½ cup
Rice Four – 2to 3 tbsp
Maida-1/2 cup
Curd/yogurt plain – 1 cup
Salt
Green chilli's – 2
Ginger 1"
Asafoedita pinch
Curry leaves.
Coconut - 1 or 2 tbsp
Soaked channa dal- 2tbsp


Method:
Add curd or yogurt in rava and mix itand soak for 2 to 3 hrs for softness. . (use sour cream and make it immediately)
Then add rice flour, maida, green chilli's, asafoetida, grated ginger, salt, coconut, chopped curry leaves,channa dal and salt in soaked rava
Heat the oil and just sprinkle like pakodas.
When it turns golden brown remove and serve it hot.

I love these tangy vadas. Its my nephews favorite, we used to buy these from street vendors. But it certainly is healthier to make them at home.
