Masala Vada Kura/Parapu Vada curry/ Dal vada Curry

This is sure a treat to people who like Masala curries like Kurmas. This curry is mostly cooked in the coastal areas of Nellore only(as per my knowledge), I have never tasted it anywhere else, there are other variations...but this is the most simple and delicious curry......I know, the word Masala Vada/ Dal Vada itself sound delicious and that too curyy:)....mmm, it's really tempting.......so friends I'm sharing my fav.recipe here...I hope you all enjoy this too....

Vada Curry Ingredients:

  • 6Masala Vadas/Dal Vada, 1/2onion(sliced). 1/2toamato(diced), 2tsp.oil, 1/2tsp.mustard and jeera each, 2spring curry leaves, 11/2tsp.red chilli powder, few pinches turmeric powder, salt to taste.

Masala :

  • Grind 1/4cup coconut, 3cloves garlic, 1''piece of ginger, 1''cinammon stick, 3cloves, 1tsp.coriander powder and 1/4 onion, into fine paste using little water.

Curry:

  • In a Pan heat oil, once it is hot add mustard and jeera, once they start to splutter add onions, curry leaves and fry till the onions are tasnslucent, then add tomatos and fry for a while, then add ground masala, salt and turmeric powder and fry on medium heat until masala is light brown in color now add red chilli powder, 1cup of water and cook for about 5min., once the gravy starts to boil, drop in the masala vadas and switch off the heat, close it with the lid......( the gravy should be little watery consistency before dropping the vadas, later vadas absorb the water and the gravy gets thick)serve it after 15min., this helps vadas to incorporate the flavors of gravy and they turn little soft......

Masala Vada I love, but never tried to make it at home..I will go to the market and pick up some and make this curry. (like I make dahi Vada out of Medu Vadas from market)

sangeeta said...

hey i came here on somebody's recommendation you know.....loved it...
will see all your posts whenever i get time..
masala vada i like very much but never thought of making a curry with it..
a similar similar sounding ( but with northern flavors) curry is made in our place which is called mungori ki subzi or mung ki goli....and i have tried one bengali curry like this which is called dhokar dalna....the only similarity in all these curries is that they are made with dal dumplings...:)..all have different flavors...it is wonderful to see different variations..
