Thavala vadai is so instant if rava is ready.Rava is made with rice and toor dal. This rava can be made at home or you can powder it in a rice mill.Once it is done you can store in a container for at least 6 months.you can also make uppu pindi(arisi upma) with this.This vada will be so tasty.Every body in my home like this vada. I am going to teach 2 methods of preparation. In one method it is prepared by deep frying.In another method we are going to toast it in tawa. if you are so cautious about oil u can use second method.
|Instant Thavala vada|

Toor dal - 1/2 cup(kandipappu).
water - 2 + 1/4 cup.

Preparation of Rava
Wash rice and toor dal together.Then Spread it in a cloth or a plate to dry and grind it coarsely like rava.(both rice and toor dal should be ground coarsely together like rava). Now rice toordal rava is ready.
If you have a rice mill near your place, you can get it ground coarsely like rava.Then store it in a container.You can store it even for 6 months.
- Take a thick bottomed kadai, add 2 + 1/4 cup of water and salt.When it starts boiling add this rice toor rava , stir well, till it becomes thick and should not have any lumps. Dough should hold in your hands.
- When it cools down make small balls as shown in the picture, then flatten it like vadai.vadai should not be too thicker or thinner. it should be moderate.
- Make 5 to 6 vada's then deep fry it in a oil, till both sides are cooked and turned golden brown.Repeat it in cycles. Make sure that vadas(chekkalu) should not be over crowded.
It goes very with Onion chutney(ulli chammanthi).
