Dal-free vegetable vada patties: 6-ingredient and stove-top
Don’t worry, I am not going to open the post with a quote this time. Although I was thinking about them, it stopped right away when I was editing a picture of corns.
I also wanted to open this recipe with, “That day when we went out to dine, we tried this amazing bur…,” no, I cannot do that either. Why? Because I rarely eat out.
I guess that is what special about this blog and my food adventures. I get to DIY the things I never tasted before and make them from scratch.
To some, it may sound depressing but to all the other fellow doers, it sounds exciting.
Hmm… focusing the telescope onto the title, “Dal-free Vegetable vada patties,” I cannot help but smirk at my naming-a-recipe talent.
As the name suggests, this patties has no dals or dhals or grams. They are purely made of vegetables, wheat flour and of course, salt.
There is a proverb in Tamil language(One of Indian languages),
The converse(too much salt) is also true (This line always takes me to high school mathematics).
Always add salt little by little. After all, everybody’s taste buds are different. Even among the people that lives in the same house and eats same food.
This recipe is inspired by Homemade hash browns with spinach and carrot by Inspired-recipes.com.
Method is simple: Grate vegetables, squeeze out water, add salt, wheat flour and mix. The only challenge will be not spilling them onto the counter. A big bowl is your solution.
Instead of chunky patties like the original, I flattened them thin and substituted corn starch with wheat flour. One step towards healthy eating!
Grated vegetables might look a bit dry and separate. Once salt is added, they bring out the water in them and this helps the wheat flour bind every ingredient together.
Addition of corn kernels gives different dimension to the patties and coriander makes them smell and taste like Vadais.
They are best eaten hot!
