Onion Vadai Recipe

ADVERTISING

If you’re a pyaaz pakora (onion fritters) fan, the onion vadai or ulli vada will be your BFF from Kerala. A South Indian version of onion rings, the onion vadai consists of crispy batter fried onion slices. What truly gives this dish the Kerala stamp is the ginger and curry leaf flavor.

The best part about this recipe is the fact that you change the batter-onion ratio for a crispier (less or thin batter) a soft and doughier (more batter) version. You can even fry the vadais in coconut oil as a healthier and yummier option. Follow this recipe, which is the perfect balance of crisp and doughy, to make a batch of Kerala-style onion vadais.
