What ever the special occasion it is our first priority goes to Vada recipe or puri. Most of us prefer Vada because of essence or texture. Especially during rainy season many of our taste buds prefer oil food, especially crunchy and soft foods.

Many of us think that if the batter is hard it absorbs less oil and if it’s loose then more oil. I suggest maintaining the batter in such consistency that it not too hard and too loose, we should be able to make vada shape. This will bring soft and crisp Medhu Vadai Recipe output.
