The two deep fried delicacy which we make for most of the festivals are ulundu vadai and paruppu vadai. I have posted the first one before itself. But somehow i forgot to post paruppu vadai recipe. No worries now, i am up with the recipe. It is so easy to make, you don't have the difficulty in shaping this vadai too, because it just needs to be flatten before frying.
You don't need too much ingredients to make this too. Just some fresh stuff and you are ready to go. There are some variations in this vadai recipe, i will post that soon. We use that vadai to make rasam vadai. When talking about rasam vadai, my mom makes the tastiest, mouth melting rasam vadai, which we call as restaurant style rasam vadai or nise rasam vadai. I will post that too.
I hope you will love this recipe and let me know what you think.
