  11. There was a girl from Maddur in Karnataka used to work in my project & whenever she goes home she brings this vada to all of us. Your vada just reminded me of that.
    Love the majestic looking vadas. Also the ones, my colleague brought used to be very huge. I think at home to save oil, it is better to make it in small round shapes as you have done!!
    Love them!
