Batata Poha Vada/Potato Rice Flakes Fritters

Most of us know very well that batata vada is quite a popular Mumbai street food, i tried the same batata vada just by adding few rice flakes and turned them as batata poha vada, needless to say that this batata vada tastes marvellous for evening snacks with a cup of coffee or tea..Adding poha to the usual batata vada turned these vadas truly yummy, definitely a fabulous twist to the usual ones...Sending to Radhika's Deep Fried Snacks, Kurinji's Healthy Recipe Hunt-POha & Srivalli's Kid's Delight-Street Food....
