Biscuit Ambade

Sunday evening when R asked for something to munch on.. I doled out the usual - banana bajji, potato bajji etc etc and he said make Biscuit Ambade. Biscoote used to be a favourite evening snack in my mom's house and has lots of fond memories associated with it :)

Biscoote is urad dal batter deep fried in Oil

You Need:
Urad dal - 2 cups
Green chillies - 2 tbsp finely chopped
Ginger - 1 tsp finely chopped
Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp finely chopped
Hing - 1 pinch
Oil for deep frying

Soak the Urad dal for 2 hrs
Drain the water and grind it into a fine paste with very very little water
Add green chillies, ginger, coriander, hing and salt
Mix Well
Heat oil, do the heat test
Wet your hand with water, take a small lemon sized ball of the batter and drop it into the oil
Based on the size of the pan drop 5 - 6 bisoote in it
Fry the vadas till they are golden on medium flame on all sides
Drain on an absorbent paper
Serve with chutney or sauce of your choice

The consistency of the batter is very important. The Batter should not be runny
I soaked the urad dal in hot Water for 1 hr
Instead of grinding in the mixie, I used the pulser this makes the batter smooth and fluffy
