  • 2 cups Hot water

  • Wash and Soak urad dal in water for 3-4 hours. Grind into a fine paste. Add semolina, salt and 1/2 cup water. Mix thoroughly and keep aside for 10 minutes. Heat an Appam pan. Apply a few drops of oil. Drop a spoon of the batter in each Appam space. Flip and Cook for 2 minutes from each side.
  • Take them out in a bowl. Add hot water and let the Vadas dip in the hot water for 10 minutes. Take yogurt in a bowl. Add sugar and mix with a fork or whisk. Now squeeze each vadas with your fingers to remove excess water. Dip all the Vadas in yogurt mixture to cover nicely.
