    • Add water if needed..Just sprinkle and mix.
    • Deep fry them in Super hot oil, reduce the flame and adjust the flame if needed
    • If you wish you add some coriander leaves to the mix.
    • Flame adjustment is a must one, if you cook the vada in low flame, vada drinks more oil, if you cook them in medium flame it take more time to cook and will not get a crispy vada.. if you cook in extreme high flame, vada’s make burn soon, inside portion will not not cook.. so make sure, the oil is super hot enough to drop the vada, once you drop the vada, Keep them in medium flame and with 4-5 mins all sides will cooked, then raise the flame to medium-high and turn the dada’s to crispy..
