Ping your (male) friends and ask if they like Idly-Vada in a platter more than they like Pizza. It’s unbelievable how my dad, husband & my male friends order the same Idly Vada everytime they enter a South Indian restaurant. So much for the craze that I ground up the Vada Batter a few days before our festival this week… every bit of it to be enjoyed by the Fam, lol!
If you’ve made up your mind to prepare this from scratch over the weekend, get the prep started atleast a couple hours in advance. Medu Vada pairs great with Tiffen Sambar and coconut chutney.
