Chettinad Special | Kalkandu Vadai | கற்கண்டு வடை | Seethai Aachi's Kitchen
By Pakka Admin - May 26,2017
Kalkandu Vadai is a very famous Chettinadu vadai. This is a sweet vadai instead of the usual salt vadai. Tastes Great. In my native place whenever we want to do some group pooja or if it is an auspicious day like Diwali, thiru karthikai like that then we prepare this kalkandu vadai.
It used to be originally made with kalkandu and hence the name Kalkandu Vadai. Nowadays it is replaced with normal sugar. (Sugar Candy in English & Misri in Hindi)
Urad Dal – 3/4 cup
Raw Rice – 1/4 cup
kadalai paruppu (chenna dal)-1tbs this is optional
Kalkandu – 1/4 kg(powder it or sugar can be added 3/4 cup)
Oil for frying
Wash & soak the urad dhal – rice mixture for about 45 minutes, drain the water and spread the mixture on a clean cloth/towel. So that the cloth sucks the water. If using Kalkandu keep it ready in powdered form.
