For this recipe we need:-

Urad dal-1 cup
Salt to taste

Soak the urad dal for 2 hours.
Now grind into a paste and add salt.Do not put more water.Paste should be hard.
Now take it into greased with oil to steel big plate.
Make sure small rounds balls on a plate.Vadiyalu is shown in below video.

Dry them under the hot sun for a completely dry.(it will take for 1 to 2 days for dry up ).
 Then remove from the plate store them in a airtight container for long time.Soon i will come with this curry recipes.

Never heard about this dear,,you got lot of patience nice recipe dear.


Thanks all for your valuable feedback.


you need to fry it in oil and add to currys. Usually , when you put tadka/popu, add these small vadiyalu to the popu , and when they turn brown, add the vegetable and cook as usual. at the end, they will be kind of soft not very crunchy
