rava vada recipe | instant rava medu vada | suji vada | sooji medu vada with step by step photo and video recipe. vada or south indian deep fried fritters are always one of the popular choices for morning breakfast and evening snacks. generally, these vada’s are prepared with a choice of lentils or a combination of lentils to prepare a crispy snack. yet it can be time-consuming and tricky to prepare with lentils hence there is a cheat version to this recipe and rava vada is one such instant version.

i have always been a huge fan of instant recipes. that does not mean i always acknowledge any instant recipes and it has to be justified when compared to its traditional counterpart. instant rava medu is one such alternative that you would easily love it when compared to the urad dal medu vada. it does not carry the complexity of grinding, soaking and no fear of fermentation. i generally prepare this with my leftover sooji upma but in this post, i have shown it from scratch. moreover, the other benefit of this recipe is the ease of shaping the vada. you may find it difficult to shape an urad based dough, but with rava it is stiff and hence can be easily shaped. it also holds the shape and hence it looks symmetric like doughnuts. therefore i would strongly recommend trying this snack and enjoying your morning breakfast or evening snack with a cup of tea or coffee.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the instant rava medu vada recipe. firstly, the medium-sized rava which is generally used for upma or any sooji based breakfast recipes is used for this recipe too. you may not get the same texture, consistency and also shape as other types of rava like bansi or fine rava. secondly, the rava based dough has to be stiff and dense when compared to the urad dal based dough. this makes it easy and simple to shape and also it holds the shape. moreover, you can use the lower part of any steel based utensil to shape it and slide it into the hot oil. lastly, if you find it difficult to shape it like a doughnut, you may shape it like a ball and deep fry it. having a hole or doughnut shape does not add any taste factor to the vada.
