Raw Rice (Pulunga Arisi) / Idli Rice – 1 cup
Coconut – ½ shell (finely grate it or grind it little coarse without adding water)
Salt – to taste
Wash and clean the rice and soak it in water for ½ an hour. Grind it by adding enough water until it is smooth. The batter should be very thick in consistency like the chapatti dough.
Add enough salt and grated coconut in the batter and mix it well. The dough looks like as in the image given below.
Heat oil in a deep pan for deep frying the vadas. Take a plastic sheet and apply a tbsp of oil on that sheet. Take a small ball of flour and place it on the sheet and flatten it with your hands.
