Masala Vadai

Masala Vadai – south Indian spiced patties is a popular South Indian snack available in all small tea shops. We can say this snack as a street food. In my home town I have seen in many streets selling this vada morning and evening time. The best combo for this snack is coconut chutney/tomato ketchup.

Sip a cup of tea with masala vadai, the taste is delicious mmmmm 🙂 Crunchy outside . We can also prepare Masala Vadai Kuzhambu with this fried vadais which I would post in upcoming days.
