Broccoli Black Urad Dal Vadai/ Broccoli Karuppu Ulundhu Vadai

For Pongal festival, i couldnt stop myself making some healthy vadas, yes after making barnyard millet sweet pongal, i simply fried this black urad dal vadais. Usually if its a festival, we usually prepare a feast at home. Though Pongal was a working day for us, i prepared a simple, healthy foods before leaving to my work.One among those healthy foods is this broccoli, black urad dal medhu vadai. Yes you read it rite, i simply added some finely chopped broccoli to the black urad dal batter. The addition of broccoli makes this medhu vadais more interesting and very healthy as well. Trust me, whoever hate broccoli to the core will definitely enjoy thoroughly this crispy and very delicious vadais.

Am running third week of blogging marathon with Festival of the month as theme, obviously this fantastic medhu vadai goes prefect for this theme.  These black urad dal medhu vada makes a prefect evening snack when served along with sambar or coconut chutney. I used finely chopped broccolis for making medhu vadas, you can very well add any sort of veggies for making this medhu vadas. The addition of these veggies turned out this medhu vadas very delicious and healthy at the same time.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#60.
