Follow Me on Pinterest

This is a famous snack in Sri Lanka. It is easily available to buy. Making Parippu vade for tea time is a perfect treat for family members & also for the guests.

Here is the recipe.
Ingredients (for 10 vade)
Toor dhal 1/2 cup (Thora parippu/kadala parippu)
Dry red chillies  1-2 nos (sliced)
Green chillies  1-2nos ( sliced )
1 medium sized Onion (sliced)
Curry leaves  1 stem (crushed)
Red chilly powder  1 tsp
Oil  for deep frying
Salt to taste

Soak Thor dhal for about 2- 3 hrs.
Wash & drain well.

Keep 2 - 3 tbsp of this soaked dhal aside.
Then coarse grind the remaining dhal  in a food processor/grinder.
Don’t add any water.Finally it should be a coarse mixture.

Combine all the ingredients listed above together with the grinded mixture.Add the 2-3 tbspn dhal which kept aside.Check for salt & taste.

Taking a small portion into your palm, make small balls & again make them flat.(shape as Vade)

Deep fry until both sides are brown.
Serve hot with ketchup or any sauce.

Note: To prevent breaking of Vade, Microwave them in high for 3 minutes (before deep frying).
This can be kept in deep freezer for more than 2 weeks (before frying) & deep fry when you want to eat.
