This is a quick vadai that can be made in few minutes, if you have soaked peas in your freezer..This taste more or less like the paruppu vadai which you must have had..But this is the instant version and easy one..I found this in one of the aval vikadan magazine and tried it immediately..
You can serve this with coconut chutney and a cup of ginger and cardamom chai( which I will post now)..If you have any left over vadai, you can cut them and make vadai curry out of it..just now remembered that recipe, yes I will post it soon..I hope you will love this and let me know what you think..
