Coconut Vadai / Nalar Bhairi

Ingredients:

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
Cooking Oil


Cooking Instructions:


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. Now remove it from the cover and drop it in the oil carefully. Wait until the one side of vada cooks well and now turn it to the other side, and and wait until the other side is cooked well. Remove it from the oil and drain the excess oil with a paper towel. Nalar bhairi is ready to eat. It’s a good evening snack. Children will love it!
