Ulli vada / Onion vada

Onions - 2 medium
Green chillies -1
Curry leaves -  few
Besan/ Chick pea flour / Kadalamavu - 3/4 cup
Rice flour - 2 tbs
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Salt- to taste
Water - as required


Slice onions vertically. Finely chop green chillies, and ginger. Add them to sliced onions. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and squeeze between fingers to make the onions soft . Adding of salt brings out the moisture from onions. 
Add Besan , rice flour, red chilli powder, Salt, Asafoetida, turmeric powder,  and curry leaves to the onion and mix well . Knead it nicely by only using moisture from onions. We should not add any water. The moisture content in onions is enough to get a thicker dough.

Heat oil in a pan. Test, if its hot by adding a pinch of dough. If it sizzles up immediately, then the oil is hot. Take small amounts of dough and drop it gently in the oil. 

Keep the flame in medium . Flip and fry the vadas evenly in all sides. Remove the fried ulli vadas from oil and place it in a plate having paper towel to drain the excess oil

Yummy, spicy and crispy Ulli Vada (Onion Vada) is ready to Serve with Hot Tea / Coffee.
