    no problem at all, no new procedure needed............graind pudinaa or tomato with little water and strain it. add this water instead of plain water to prepare vadam. that is all you will get as per your requirement.

    even after reading this you are not satisfied, please let me know, I will explain again :)

    Broad Beans Fryums ..........Avarekkai Vaththal.

    Now it is season for Avarekkaai. so we can prepare 'vathal' and keep them for a year. And enjoy Avarekkaai any time.

    Ingredients:

    1 kg ( or as per your need) Avaraikaai
    2 hand full of Cristal Salt

    Method:

    In a big pan take 6 to 7 lt. water and keep it in the Gas stove.
    Let it be in high flame.
    Once it starts boiling, add salt and just mix it.
    then add washed and cleaned Avarakkai in that.
    Slightly sim the flame.
    Let it cook for 3 - 5 min.
    You can put a lid on it.
    In between you just mix it well, so that all the veg. can cook even.
    Once it is half cooked, check the salt taste and if you want more , you can add according to your taste.
    When you see the veg. changed from its green colour to dark, it is done.
    Switch off the stove and drain the water.
    Put all the cooked avaraikaai in a plastic sheet one by one and put them in sunlight.
    It will dry within 2 - 3 days.
    Just store them in a air tight container as vathal and fry them when you want them.
    This will be very good with curd rice or any mixed rice.
