You Don't Need a Silver Fork to Eat Good Food...that saying is so true...

Please follow these tips: 
  • If the meat mince is coarse ground or has chunks of meat I recommend to grind it further in a coffee blender we need a fine mince for this recipe.
  • If the vadas are breaking in oil or its not crispy add 1 to 2 tbsp of roasted bengal gram powder to the vada mixture and fry.
  • Always add salt to the vada mixture just before frying as the onion tends to sweat after adding salt the vada mixture might tend to get soggy.
Roasted bengal gram is not besan....besan is chick pea flour or also called as kadalai maavu...

1/2 Kilo Mince Meat
2 Medium Onions (finely chopped)
Fist Full of Mint and Coriander (finely chopped)
2 Tbsp Roasted Bengal Gram (powdered)
1 Tbsp Ghee
5 Green Chillies (finely chopped)
1 Tbsp Ginger and Garlic Paste
1 Tbsp Chilly Powder
1 Tbsp Garam Masala
1 Egg
Salt as per taste
Oil for frying

  • In a mixing bowl add meat mince, onion, chilly powder, garam masala, finely chopped mint and coriander, ginger and garlic paste, chillies and egg do not mix right away...
  • Heat ghee in a fry pan on low flame add the bengal gram flour and allow to fry till it foams a bit.
  • Add the gram flour mixture to the meat add salt as per taste and mix all the ingredients till well combined allow to marinate for an hour before frying.
  • After an hour heat oil in a wok on medium flame once the oil is hot and ready for frying.
  • Take lime size portions of meat and flatten a bit drop in hot oil toss gently and fry on both sides till golden brown in colour.
  • Drain the excess oil place the vada on tissue paper and serve hot as a starter or side dish for south indian meal...Enjoy...:)

  2. I live in Holland and simply cannot find Bengal gram flour; can I use chickpea flour , self-raising flour or rice flour as a substitute?
    Awaiting a response please; thanks
