Today is letter V under our mega marathon themed Journey through Tamil cuisines and its a popular accompaniment,vadacurry.
Vadcurry is an accompaniment served for idly,dosa and idiyappam.Mini masala vadas are dunked in a creamy rich onion,tomato based gravy.
As this curry was introduced in a hotel at Saidapete in Chennai and gets popular.Since then its called as Saidepete vadacurry/vadakari.
Low fat steaming version of vadas can be made and add in the gray.But in hotels deep fried vadas are crumbled and used.So I followed the recipe and deep fried the vadas,used it.Off to the recipe........
- After adding the vadas to the gravy,it tends to absorb more gravy so adjust the consistency of the gravy while cooking.
- For steaming the vadas,take the prepared batter in a idly plate and steam for 5-7 minutes.
- Instead of coconut milk,coconut paste can also be used.
