Pesara Garelu


Sick of eating the same Medhu Vadas all the time, then try this variation. These are made with whole moong dal. Here is the recipe:

1 cup Moong Dal
1/4 cup Urad Dal
1" piece of Ginger
3 to 4 Green chillies
Salt as per taste
a pinch of Baking Soda

Wash and soak moong dal overnight. Just before 3 to 4 hours before wash and soak urad dal also. Grind both dals along with ginger, green chillies and salt. Add baking soda to the batter.

Wet your both hands. Take a lemon size batter and spread it on your left hand palm. Dip your right hand finger into water again and make a small hole and drop it with your right hand into the hot oil. Fry until they turn golden brown colour.

They taste excellent with any pickle of your choice. Enjoy.


This is contribution to my own event called Sunday Snacks with the theme being Fry it.

Lacha Paratha

This is a better variation to the normal phulkas. Its flaky texture temps you to have more than two easily and when you pair it with a wonderful gravy, they taste awesome. For the first time when I made them, I fell in love instantaneously. Here is how you make them:


1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp oil
warm water as needed

Rub oil into the flour and then add warm water as needed and make a stiff dough. Let it rest for an hour.

Make lemon sized balls out of the dough. Take a ball and roll into oval shape. Coat the top side oil and sprinkle flour generously. Now fold it from one side to other side like a saree pleats. Now roll it like a coil and continue to do the same with other balls too.

Now heat a tawa/pan on medium-high heat. Roll each coil shaped ball into a flat chapathi. Fry it on both sides applying little oil. Remove from the pan and put it on a paper towel or kitchen towel and press it from sides such that the flakes will seperate.


Serve it with any gravy of your choice. I served it with my favorite Alu Gobi.

This is off to Zorra for her World Bread Day event.

Masala Vada

These vadas are nothing new to food blog world. Almost every blog has a recipe posted for masala vada. This is such a famous snack, especially for south indians. My husband loves them so much, so I make them most often. Here is the recipe for the masala vadas that I usually make:


1 cup Chana dal soaked for 45 minutes
2-3 green chillies
1/2" piece of ginger chopped roughly
1 tsp cumin seeds
few curry leaves
salt as per taste
1 small onion chopped finely
oil to fry

Drain chana dal and take all the ingredients except onion into a blender and blend them all together without adding any water into a coarse paste. Add chopped onion to the paste. Make small patties in your palm and fry them in hot oil. Serve them with any chutney or sauce of your liking. I served them with Tomchi suace.


Such a simple recipe and tastes great. This is my first contribution to my own event called Sunday Snacks with the theme Fry it.
