Medu Vada Recipe

Medu Vada Spicycookery

 Medu Vada  a traditional snack of South Indians. Usually in most of the South Indian restuarants, Medu Vada is served along with Masala Dosa. It is a very tasty snack made of urad dal adding some of the traditional spicy flavors. We have to just keep in mind that we need to make the medu vadas as soon as the batter is made otherwise the urad batter will start absorbing oil while making vadas. So try this yummy snack and post me your valuable comments. thanks for visiting www.spicycookery.com
