Crispy ambode recipe without onion

 Varamahalakshmi vratham  recipes - Ambode for naivedyam

Ambode ( amaivadai in Tamil ) in an important recipe for Ugadi festival. The following pics show the steps in making this traditional dish for this festival.  

 Soak gram dhall and red chillies in water for 45 minutes.   Drain the water,. Grind it coarsely as shown in the second photo. Add salt to taste while grinding.

 Then add asafoetida, finely chopped coriander leaves and curry leaves. I have used grated coconut.  It is optional. 

Make a medium sized  ball , flatten it with your palm and fry to get the ambode shown in the third photo. 

 On auspicious days and festivals some do not add onion.   ( If onion is added it  becomes masal vadai ! and we don't add onion or garlic for festivals  ) 

This is one of the important recipes along with poli for festivals.
