Rava VadaRava Vada

Vada is to South India what Samosa is to the North! Vada is a crispy deep-fried snack made with a dal-based batter. For hardcore vada lovers, not a day passes without having it with breakfast or lunch, or as an evening snack. A sumptuous breakfast platter generally combines Idli, Dosa or Ven Pongal with a ‘single vada’, which is how a single piece of hot and crisp Urad Vada ( Medu Vada ) is fondly called.

When you have breakfast in a South Indian restaurant, even in the remote villages, you will be fascinated to see the waiter reel out the list of breakfast combos, almost all of them featuring medu vada !

Evening Snack, South Indian Vada Recipes

Rasam Dal VadaRasam Dal Vada

In the evening, South Indians love to have just about any type of vada with their coffee or tea, but all-time favourites are the Masala Vada and piping hot Rava Vada or Rasam Dal Vada.

On a hot day, who can resist Curd Vadas – urad vadas soaked in curd and topped it with crispy boondi! Indeed, there is no end to the many delightful moments that you can share with the versatile vada!

Famous in the Mysore region, the Maddur Vada is a classic evening snack.

Keerai VadaiKeerai Vadai

Keerai Vadai is a crispy dal vada, perked up with chopped amaranth leaves and best had with coconut chutney. Then there is Lehsuni Vada which can be served as a starter and can be served between ladi pav.

A festive lunch on the other hand would be incomplete without an appetizing Chana Dal Vada served along with the sweets.
