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.

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!

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.
