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
Salt
Oil for deep frying

Method:
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

Notes:
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
