Myself, Shaan Geo basically a Software Engineer started my career in IT Industry. I have had a passion for food and cooking from an early age. This habit made me keep an eye out for the new variants of food and the different cuisines where ever I go. According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.

      Hi Malathi, Gram flour is also known as chickpea flour, besan or garbanzo flour. In malayalam it is called “Kadala Mavu” and in Hindi “channa ka aata”. It is the flour made from dried chickpeas/garbanzo beans. Gram flour is available in most of the grocery stores. I hope this information helps you and ulli vada / onion vada comes out well for you.

    Hi.. I think maida+kadalamaavu is more better than rice+kadalamaavu for making ullivada… what do you think Shaan?

      Hi Shefeeena, You are correct. Adding maida will taste better. But I won’t recommend it as it is unhealthy. I always try to avoid maida in my recipes until and unless it is necessary. Thanks for the suggestion and regular visit.
