You cannot make a tasty uzhunnu vada with this recipe. You have to add small onions, ginger, chilli and curry leaves to make a better vada.

Hi Anjali,
This is not Vada. This uzhunnu Unda. To make vada ,ginger and chill is essential.

Adding two tablespoons of toordal with the urad dal will make the vadai more crispier. Especially for sambar vada there is no need to add onions in the flour. Instead, we put onions in sambar. And only tomato and onions for the sambar. No vegetables needed in the sambar for the sambar vada.
