During all festival days and poojas coconut plays an important role. We will have lot of coconuts, but we don’t know what to do with that. Here is the best idea to use it. My mom will do it frequently.
When u grind for idaly, soak extra 1 cup of rice for vada also.
Rice – 1cup
Salt as required
Oil- for deep fry
1. Grind the soaked rice with little water, its should be thick like u grind idiyapam. keep it aside by adding salt to it.
2. Add grated coconut to it. Coconut should mix with grinded rice nicely.
3. If the grinded vada mix is little watery add rice flour to it. Keep the pan,pour oil to fry.
4. Take small lemon size vada mix. Press it with your hand nicely so that it flattens. Now deep fry the vada in oil. Now the vada is ready.
We can have it for evening tiffon with tea. In our house my mom prepares it for breakfast itself. Side dish for this vada is red chilli idaly powder.
