Waffling around - A Pictorial

Qn1. Identify the dish:


a. Waffles
b. Pop tarts
c. Medu vada
d. A really late April Fools Joke
e. None of the above

For all those who either said waffles or medu vada, pat yourselves on the back.

This has been a staple snack in my kitchen ever since I received a waffle iron as a gift & had to figure out what to do with it. to make this you need the following

I cup urad dal soaked.
Salt to taste,
your personal choice of spices (green chillies, red chili powder, pepper...)
grind the Soaked urad dal with salt & spices till it forms a stiff whipped batter much like the consistency of a well beaten egg white. A stone grinder works best for achieving this.

1 tbsp oil and brush

A waffle iron with nonstick plates


& yes, you can put these back in your cupboard



Method:
brush plates with oil.
Drop a dollop of batter on to a heated waffle iron & let cook until the steam ceases to escape.



Open the waffle iron



and transfer into a serving dish


A word of Caution...
Make sure you wait till the waffle iron stops steaming... or else



this is what you'll get.. ( the scraps are perfectly edible.. but that's another story!)
