A rainy day, cool breeze, piping hot tea with this vadas, Can you resist? No, I cant! 😀 Few months back, dad got some of these and we loved it.. The crispy vadas with the peanut chutney and tea the combo was awesome! I tried recreating, but failed that time.. Suddenly, I thought of making these 4-5 days back and they came out so good.. The next day itself, I doubled the quantity i had made the previous day and we enjoyed them to the core!
