For most people, urad dal based Medu Vada is a must-have with breakfast. However, the extra calories that come out of deep-frying the batter could be troublesome. In that case, you can try this Low-Calorie Medu Vada cooked in an appe mould with minimal oil. Keep some hot, steaming sambhar ready, and dunk the vadas in them as soon as they are ready. This is very important, because vadas cooked with less oil tend to harden over time. Serving them fresh with sambhar however is doubly delightful.
