Rave Vada


Hello everyone, back to bloging after a long break. Had a nice vacation and we were all feeling little under the weather. Now everybody is feeling good and nice to be bloging again.

Winter has already started here and temperatures are below zero degrees and days are getting dark and darker each day. Just feels like sitting home and eating spicy food.

Yesterday evening I had prepared rave vada, different than usual pakoras and bajjis.

 So recipes is here


Fine rava/fine soji/chiroti rava  -1 cup

Yogrut/curd –             about 3/4 to 1 cup

Red onion finely chopped    -1/4 cup

Green chillies-         3 or more

Corriender leaves   – choppped 2 tsp

Corriander leaves   2 tbsp

Salt  according to taste.


  • Heat a tsp of oil or ghee and fry fine rava till light brown or the raw smell is gone. 
  • When the rava is cool enough,take a bowl mix everthing together add curd little by little. Batter should be of thick consistancy(like we make for channadal vada).
  • Meanwhile heat peanut oil on medium high heat.
  • When hot enough  make small round balls and flatten it with palm of you hand and deep fry till golden brown.

Its ready to eat .Enjoy !

    Welcome back.
    Vada looks nice. I make similar ones to these called Maddur Vada but we add maida and rice flour.

    Thanks Praveena….It does tastes similar to ‘maddur vada’ this is more crisp than that. Try it so you’ll know the difference.

    Wow,….such a simple recipe,..yet sounds delicious…..will try it soon. Thanks for sharing Madhu.

    Its simple indeed….. and about the rava it is much more finer than the upma rava. Called as fine rava/ fine soji. Mostly used in making samosa dough or panipuri.
    dough. Hope this much info is good enough.

So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! However yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love studying more on this topic. If possible, as you change into experience, would you mind updating your weblog with more details? It’s highly helpful for me. Massive thumb up for this weblog post!

    I simply needed to thank you very much once more. I’m not certain what I could possibly have achieved in the absence of the entire tricks contributed by you on such problem. It previously was a real hard case in my position, but being able to view a new professional tactic you handled it forced me to cry for joy. Now i am thankful for your information as well as hope that you realize what a great job you are putting in training most people using your blog post. More than likely you’ve never got to know all of us.
