Instant Rava Vada

Instant Rava Vada is a quick and easy one to make when you are pressed for time. You can serve this for breakfast or a quick evening snack.

When I was thinking about the next vada that I could make, I read about this Instant Rava Vada that only takes about 30 mins of resting time and you have a wonderful dish ready. Though my third week dishes were ready before I could do other weeks, this recipe was pending until this weekend.

I had planned it as a breakfast and then finally made it for Saturday lunch. However, on its own, this vada will surely be very filling to be served for breakfast. I love all the instant dishes one gets to make with Rava or Semolina, so this was no different.

Make sure you add the baking soda as it’s required to make the vada soft, else it will turn out to be hard after deep frying. Instant Rava Vada is my choice for the BM#104 Sweets & Snacks Week 3, whereas its another deep fried snack in Cooking 4 all Seasons.

Come back next week for the interesting Mandatory Week were all of us will be cooking the same dish from different selected States of India.

How to make the Instant Rava Vada

Take the Rava in a bowl, add finely chop the onions, chilies and coriander leaves, curry leaves along with cumin seeds, soda, and salt.

Let this sit for 30 mins. The batter is quite thick at this stage and you might have to add a few tsp of water later.
After 30 mins, heat the Kadai with oil.
Mix the batter again and check if it requires some water. So add few tsp and mix again.
Take a small ball, wet your palm, flatten the ball into thin discs and gently slide into the hot oil.

  1. These definitely make a quick and yummy snack without all the soaking and grinding fuss. I used to make a bunch of variety of fritters including this when I did not care about calories but haven’t tried these in a long time. And that baking soda tip is a good one. Otherwise these end up rock hard.
