Crispy crunchy Ulli Vada recipe |Onion Fritters Kerala Style|Pyaaz Pakoda


Ulli vada is nothing but Onion fritters Kerala style /Onion Pakoda (Pyaaz Pakoda) in Hindi .Ulli vada ,I believe, is the easiest fritters among the vadas ,which doesn't require any soaking lentils ,grinding into any sorta paste ,neither,like any other fritters that require a liquid-y batter to make them .Yes,this Ulli vada has in itself the magic to make the batter and that's exactly what I love about them and what made me a fan of this crispy crunchy ulli vada .

It was my better 1/2 who introduced me to this onion fritters in Kerala because he is a die hard fan of snacks and ulli vada from Kerala tops that list .However,there are two different kinds of ulli vada it seems - one ulli vada made with Gram flour/Kadalamaavu and other Ulli vada made with All purpose flour/Maida which is quite sold in almost all restaurants from small scale to upscale restaurants in Kerala.Both vadas look different and so are their taste .However,my hubby loves both Ulli vadas and I am a fan of the ulli vada made with gram flour only and that is the one I make at home mostly .


This ulli vada made with besan/Gram Flour/Kadalamaavu is quite easy to make and sooo tasty ...Some people prefer to eat this vada with ketchup especially kids but myself and my better 1/2 loves to eat this ulli vada with hot cup of tea and if it is raining outside or is cloudy or is chilly or is weekend ,then it becomes tad more special .💕😍

There are even two ways to make this ulli vada.So,first let's see how I make the ulli vada recipe Kerala style at home :
