About Minapa Vadiyalu:
Minapa Vadiyalu, also known as Sun-Dried Urad Dal Badi, is a beloved South Indian classic. This simple yet delicious dish has been a staple in Andhra households for generations. It’s prepared by sun-drying ground urad dal batter, resulting in crispy, flavorful discs that can be used year-round.
In the rural countryside, where our roots lie, Minapa Vadiyalu is a farmer’s favorite. It perfectly complements a humble meal of curd rice or starch rice, accompanied by a delectable Minapa Vadiyalu curry. Its versatility shines as it can also be enjoyed with just a side of onions or green chilies.
Our Unique Approach:
What sets our Minapa Vadiyalu apart is that it’s not deep-fried. Instead, it offers the flexibility to create a savory curry with minimal ingredients when fresh vegetables are scarce.
To ensure your Minapa Vadiyalu turn out perfectly every time, follow these tips:
• When grinding dal, add a pinch of salt instead of water for a free-flowing batter.
• The batter should have a coarse, hard consistency.
• Ensure the vadiyalu are completely moisture-free to prevent spoilage.
• For enhanced flavor, consider adding onions to your Minapa Vadiyalu curry.
• Minapappu (Urad Dal) – 2 glasses (500 gms)
• Water – As needed
• Green chilies – 7-8
• Cumin seeds – 1 tbsp
• Ginger – 3 pieces (2-inch each)
• Onions – 1 bowl
• Salt – 1 tbsp
1. Soak Minapappu overnight in an adequate amount of water.
2. If using whole dal, soaking overnight makes it easier to remove the skin. For skinless dal, you can proceed directly to the wet grinder.
3. In a wet grinder, combine green chilies, ginger, and cumin seeds, grind to a paste.
4. Add soaked dal to the grinder and blend into a soft, hard paste.
5. Transfer the mixture to a wide vessel and add salt and onion pieces. Mix thoroughly.
6. Spread small portions of the batter on a clean cloth or polythene sheet.
7. Sun-dry the batter until semi-dry, then gently flip to dry the other side.
8. Once moisture-free and completely dry, store your Minapa Vadiyalu in an airtight container.
