So comforting, crunchy, healthy and delicious. I would enjoy this yummy snack any time of the day.

Also, your newest post...I could not comment on the gorgeous cake, without the eggs. Yoghurt seems to take the place of the eggs. No cholesterol. Sound great to me.Blog
would not let me be the first commentor:-(

Priya, I mentioned to you that I have an award for you...you missed it when you were commenting on my previous post...your name is on the list!

I tried these today, in a much larger batch, for a party at my hubby's office. They came out just wonderful! Crispy, tasty, just out of the world. Thanks so much for this recipe!

Vadas are synonymous to comfort food. Though I have to say, I've never tasted vadas with greens. Sounds deliciously healthy!!
