Kai Vade

'Kai' means Coconut in Kannada. Hence, Kai Vade refers to Vade which has Coconut as the base. Its for sure one of the quick answers to sudden guests at home during the evening snack time. This vade requires the minimum ingredients. Children thoroughly enjoy this as we eight cousins at our Gradma's place used hog on it.

The other inredient is Rice which has to be incorporated. Either we may soak rice and grind it else, for all the people who are on fast track, Rice flour is the best option. Both give equally good result. Thanks to my Amma for this short-cut!

Grated Coconut- 1 Cup
Rice flour- 1 Cup
Jeera/Cumin seeds- 1 Tsp
Black Pepper Corns- 8-10
Salt to taste

Grind Coconut, Jeera and Black pepper corns together to make a paste like that of any Chutney with the minimum amount of water required. Now to this paste, add Rice flour and salt. Mix well. The mixture should attain a dough like consistency. Just in case, there is too much water content, then add more Rice flour and adjust the consistency.

Make lemon-sized balls and place it in between two oil-greased polythene sheets. Now, with the help of a flat based vessel, apply gentle and equal pressure to make a flat Vade.

Slowly slip this vade into hot oil in a kadai. Cook on both sides. If the vade puffs up, then its success. Have it hot with Coffee/ Tea and enjoy!

Preparation Time: 20 MInutes
Serves: 2 people [5 each :) ]
