1 cup Black Eyed Beans (Lobia), Onion , chopped, 1 Green Chilli , chopped, 1/2 teaspoon Red chilli powder, 1 sprig Curry leaves , chopped, 1 inch Ginger , chopped, 4 cloves Garlic , chopped, 1 teaspoon Cumin seeds, Salt , to taste , 1 teaspoon Turmeric powder (Haldi)


  1. To begin making the Andhra Style Bobbarlu Vada/ Alsande Vada, soak the black eyed peas in water for at least 2 hours.
  2. Grind the black eyed peas in a mixer to a coarse mixture and make sure there are no peas left out as it will pop when it is frying.
  3. Add in all the rest of ingredients and grind it again. Add little water so that the mixture is quiet wet.
  4. Heat the Kuzhi paniyaram Pan and add a drop of oil to coat the pan; once the pan is well heated scoop the vada batter using a scoop spoon. Cover the pan and allow it to steam.
  5. You will notice the top part of the vada getting cooked. At this point you could add another drop of oil and then using a tiny flat spoon gently flip the vada so it can get cooked from the other side and crisp as well.
  6. When you insert the back of the spoon or a knife in the center it should come out clean – this the test to check whether it is has been cooked. Continue the same process with the remaining vada batter and enjoy the healthy version of the vada’s.
  7. Serve the Andhra Style Bobbarlu Vada along with spicy coconut chutney and cup of chai to go along with it for your evening snack.
