Quinoa is one of the super foods that is gaining popularity these days. I have been trying out a variety of recipes with it. When jagruti invited me to do a guest post for her I thought of creating a new dish with this super grain. I came out with the idea of making vadas and the recipe is very simple.
You will need:-
Soft bread crumbs... 3 slices ( about 1&1/2 to 2 cups)
(made from fresh whole wheat bread - you may use white bread)
Quinoa flour ........... 2 cups
Asafoetida .......... a pinch (optional)
Onions .................. 1 cup (finely chopped)
Green chillies ....... 3-4 (finely chopped)
Coriander leaves .. 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
Baking powder ..... 1/4 tsp
Salt ................ to taste
Oil .............. to fry
1. Mix all the ingredients together except oil.
2. Make a thick dough adding enough water. (consistency like the normal vada dough)
3. Heat oil in a pan and take a little portion of the vada dough on your wet palm, make a small hole in the middle and drop it into the oil.
4. Fry them to a golden brown colour.
Serve with chutney of your choice and sambar.
Tip: If you are not ready to fry the vadas immediately, do not add salt until then because it leaves water.
For variation we can add grated carrot or cabbage, or finely chopped greens as well.
