A vada is a delicious doughnut-like snack found in South India and often served with spicy coconut dipping sauce. The primary ingredient in this deep-fried treat is either dal, lentil, gram flour or potato.
Before you get your hopes up, they’re not sweet like doughnuts. Instead they are savory, often spiced with black pepper, chillies, mustard seeds, onion and curry. They make a wonderful side dish for breakfast or lunch or can make a tasty late-afternoon snack all on their own. Mmmm mmmm good!
