Shrimp Vada (vegetarians can substitute it with Mushrooms)


1 1/2 pound shrimps, deviened and cleaned
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
8 chillies
2 tblsp ginger
1 sprig curry leaves, finely chopped
5 pearl onions


1. Add onions, chillies, ginger, curry leaves in a food processor and blend

2. Squeeze the excess water from the shrimp and blend it again in the food processor along with onion mixture.

3. Transfer into a bowl. Add turmeric and salt. Mix them well.

4. Make 8 patties. Wet the hands each time you make patties that way it doesnt stick to your hands and comes out in  good shape.

5. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Fry each side for 5 minutes until golden brown.

TIP: Be careful while adding salt. I ve made mistakes :(. So start off with adding very little and keep adding until you reached the desired saltiness. Any seafood, requires a cautionary SALT ALERT. So Watch out!! You dont want to raise your guests Blood Pressure =P

 Oh and Serve this with Indian tea :)
