Medu Vada

Medu Vada is a favorite south Indian snack. It is a common breakfast dish and goes in combination with Idli. Vada is also served as an appetizer along with coconut chutney. The procedure is very simple, but grinding the daal is the most important part because it should be nicely grinded with very little water, while the batter of the vada should be light and fluffy so the vada comes out very nice.  Vada’s are generally very tempting that once you start eating, you can’t stop 🙂
