Javarsi Vadam


When you hear the word "Vadam" from anywhere i am the first to go and finish it .Wow man too good!!!!! .In India amma used to make it every year and stock it and later fry them and give it to us .But here is Us who is there pa ..No one to prepare for me and give .I did not like the ones which you get it in the stores ..So i decided to make it my self .My friends told me that it would be of too strain ..but i tell u guys , if i want to eat something i am really not worried to take the pains .

vathals , vaadam i am first. Our's is a walkout basement ..so was even more convenient to try it out .For the first time i made it came out really well .If we have it suda suda sambhar ,rasam and potato curry ...enna combha pa ...too good ...how much rice goes inside your body ..no count at all ...

I thought i could share with all you guys the way i prepare vadam at home.Would all like to take a ride with me in this ...

Raw Materials Required

1 lb -Javarsi
8-9 Green Chilli
4 tsp rice flour
Little Hing
2 lemon -(extract juice)

Preparation Style
Take the javarsi in a bowl and soak them in water for about 5-6 hours.Preferable if you soak by eveg 3 p.m it should be fine .Then say by 9 wash it with cold water and grind the javarsi in to paste.When u grind it see that you add 4 tsp of rice flour.
This helps to maintian the color of the vadam.
Keep this aside.Then take a big cooker and fill it with half water and pour the mixture.Then grind the green chilli and pour it into the cooker .Add hing to it also .Keep stirring the mixture for about 1 to 1.5 hours .You will seen the shine of the javasri coming out.Then add salt to it .The color of the mixture will start to change from white to transparent one .Then off the gas and close the cooker.
Next day morning it would become thick .The add lime to the thick mixture and mix it well .Then in a small bowl take little of the mixture and add enough water to loosen it up .


Then in a plastic sheet with the help of the small spoon pour little in a circle forum .Let the entire thing dry in the sun .It would be most preferred to do it on a sunny day .Then the next day you could see the vadam coming out from the sheet automatically as it is dried .Take it out and fry it oil ...Too good man .There would be a little strain for pouring the circle in the sheet but that is ok .
If we want something tasty then we need to strain rite ....!!!!!Enjoy maadi Ladies
This Month is Lakshmi's Veggie Cuisine
.I saw many of our blog friends have prepared traditional recipes like sambhar,rasam .This vadam would add a excellent combho to all of them .Thank to Lakshmi for hosting this .

Hi Deepa ,
My Mother in law makes wonderful javarisi vadaams in summer. she makes it and stores it so that it can be used throught the year. I have this with me now also and used to fry them often. loves it with sambar and rasam.

Sandeepa said...

You got such cute shapes here. Not sure if I have ever had them, is it like papad ?

DEEPA said...

Hey sandeepa ...You have to pour the liquid with a help of the spoon in the sheet .So it would stand out like the small circle .It is almost a staple papad for tamil cuisine .Apart from this we cook rice papad.When u go to india you can for sure taste them .But of course here we have the same stuff in the indian stores but sometimes they taste different .But this is home made ...So got to be different .

Deepa Hari said...

Hi Deepa,
