Semolina/Rava Vada Recipe @

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A deep fried  savory  doughnut  made with semolina, onion, yogurt, cumin seeds and ginger.

If you are looking for a quick and without fermentation of dough, this  Semolina / Vada Vada is a perfect choice.

I have rest the dough for 30 minutes before frying also added  freshly ground black pepper but this is optional, you may omit it altogether.

Running out of green chili so have used red chili instead.

Because of  the  dough was very sticky, my Semolina / Rava Vada did not have a smooth round shape, nevertheless it tasted terrific!

Interesting. Do you think they could be oven baked instead of fried? I usually try to avoid fried food at home.
anyway, thank you for sharing the recipe at The Really Crafty Link Party this week. Pinned!
