Vella (Urad Dhal and Jaggery) Vadai

From the time I started this blog I am doing 1 snack per week. My son commented that,  this is one good thing about me blogging (of course he complains that I spend more time on computer) that he get to eat some snacks. My first son is very selective in eating sweets. Vella vada  is one of his favourite

Urad dal    :    200 gm
Jaggery    :    175 gm
Raw rice: 2 tablespoon

Oil    :    ½ litre

Soak Urad dal and rice in water for 2 hours.
Drain the water and let the dhal dry on clean cloth. Let the moisture dry out
Grind the Urad dhal to a batter with jaggery.
Do not add water.
Heat oil in a frying pan.
Make vadas and fry in oil on a low flame.
If the flame is high, the vadas will not be cooked evenly.
