Sweet Urad Dal Vada / Enippu Ulundha Vadai

For the final day another interesting sweet, Sweet Urad dal Vadai (Enippu Ulundha Vadai), I tasted this after years during my last India trip. Thinking about this for longtime, finally the came and tried this last week.


Split Chana dal / kadalai parrupu
1 cup
Urad dal
1 cup
1 cup
for deep frying
a pinch



  1. Soak urad dal and split chana dal separately for 3 hours.
  2. Drain the water completely and grind both dals to smooth batter without adding any water.
  3. Finally add both dal together with jaggery and grind for few seconds (just to mix everything together).
  4. Heat oil in a kadai, take a tablespoon of batter and carefully drop in oil and cook in medium heat until it’s cooked inside.
  5. Drain the excess oil in tissue paper and serve this with banana, ghee and honey mixture.
  • In this sweet the sweetness will be mild, so to compensate that it is served with banana honey mixture. But I love the mild sweetness so skipped the banana part here.
  • When grinding the dal don’t even add a single drop of water, if you find its hard to grind add a small piece of jaggery it helps to grind.
  • By the same time don’t add to much jaggery just one or two small pieces.
  • Finally after adding 1 cup jagger don’t grind for long time, as soon as you add the jaggery you can see the batter will start to lose the thickness.
  • If you grind longtime then you might not able to make the vadai, to avoid this you can use 1 ¼ cup split chana dal.
  • If using powdered jaggery don’t grind just mix using hand. You can substitute palm sugar instead of jaggery.
