Easy Tip to Make Vadas

Easy Tip to Make Vadas is essential to have soft, spongy and airy vadas. The same tip can be used to make pakodi for kadhi, dahi bhallataazi mangori, sambhar vada or dahi vada.


  • Vada Batter


  • Use a steel strainer. Keep water in a small bowl.
  • Heat oil for frying.
  • Dip your fingers in water & spread a small patch on back of the strainer.
  • On this patch quickly, put a blob of batter.
  • Dip 1 finger in water and make small hole into the blob.Immediately turn the strainer on the wok (close to the level of oil) & allow the batter to fall into the oil.
  • Ensure that the distance is right - not to far as to cause splash of hot oil or close enough to fry the vada while being stuck to strainer.
