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

Method:

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.

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