Hanuman (Vadamala) vadai

Urad dhal (black gram dhal) - 1 cup
Wash the urad dhal and soak it in water for 10-20 minutes.
Drain the water and add jeera,black pepper corns and salt to the dhal and mix thoroughly.
Leave this mixture for 20 minutes.
Now grind this urad dhal which was soaked in water and drained and grind this without water.
You should not put even little water while grinding but grind as it is.
The paste is ready and a little coarse.
Now take a small vessel(dawara) invert it, put a small wet little thick towel on top of it.
Now take small balls in your hand place it on the wet towel on top of the inverted vessel and slowly with your fingers, flatten the batter and make it quite thin.
While flattening it you can also make a small hole in the middle when it is on the towel itself.
Now take a kadai heat sufficient oil and put these vadais one by one and the flame should be very low. now keep turning up and down till it gets a brown colour.
It takes time to cook since the flame is quite low, but then only it will be crispy.
Now remove the vadais after they turn brown , one by one and put them on a plate.
The vadais are ready for neivedhiyam. Take a neat string and put these vadais one by one and put it around God Hanuman.
