Method:
  1. Wash and soak the dal in water for couple of hours. After 2 hours, drain the water and add it to the mixer along with red chillies, salt and hing

  2. Grind everything to a nice and thick dough. Do not add water. The batter should be very thick, so that we could easily take in hands and make place it in plastic cover. Spread a Plastic sheet or white cloth in open place where you get nice sun light. Take gooseberry sized batter and keep it on plastic cover. Keep the batter in regular spaces and dry them in hot sun for 3-4 days.

  3. I have dried it for 4 days in hot sun and the vadam had become nicely dried up and becomes crispy. Fry these in hot oil till they are brown in color and crispy and crunchy. Store it in air-tight container and add it to kuzhambu whenever you need. I have made the conventional kuzhambu and added it to the kuzhambu and it tasted so yummy with kuzhambu.
