Garelu - Andhra vada made with Urad dal

Gare looks similar to vada but the batter preparation is different hence the taste too.
Whole Urad dal gives the best taste to garelu. While grinding dal, coarse grinding is done for this recipe.
Garelu are a must for festivals in Andhra. It is a good breakfast, snack or even a dinner item too. 

Preparation Time: 10 minutes 
Dal soak Time: 4-5 hours 
Cook Time: 2 minutes per batch 
Makes : 25 garelu 

Ingredients:
Whole Urad dal / Minapagullu : 2 cups
Green chilies: 10 chopped 
Ginger: 2" piece 
Curry leaves: 4-5 torn into pieces 
Salt to taste 

Method:

Wash and soak dal for 4-5 hours. Clean and grind into a coarse paste by adding very little water so the grinder could spin, chopped green chilies and Ginger pieces.

Take a lemon size ball, wet a paper towel and make a flat circle about 3 inches. Make a hole in the middle.

Heat oil for deep frying and fry 3-4 garelu at a time. Fry both sides until they are golden brown. Take them out and drain them on a paper towel.
