Poritudno uddinahittu (fried uddinahittu)

Uddinahittu is a curd based delicacy quite common in shivalli households. In functions this is usually served before rasam and after the dal. There are many ways in which this is made.. I have given below two variations which are prepared often in my house.

Urad dal - 2 tbsp
Curds - 1 cup
Green chillis - 3 chopped
ginger - 1" chopped
Hing - 1 pinch
Salt to taste

For tadka
Mustard - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - 3
chillis - 1 small


Dry roast the urad dal in a pan
grind it into a fine powder.
Add the curds, green chillis, ginger, hing and salt.
Mix well.
Add the tadka.
Serve with hot rice along with menasinakai balaka.

The consistency should be that of dosa batter
Add more curds if required.
