bread vada recipe

bread vada is one of those quick and easy snacks that can be made with bread slices. they taste also good and can be served as an evening snack with some chai or coffee.

here i have used homemade no knead whole wheat bread. you can even use multi grain or whole wheat bread or brown bread. addition of onions does give a nice crunch in the crisp outer layer. the herbs and spices also add a slight pungency and spiciness in the vadas. you can also make bread medu vada with this recipe. you just need to make a depression in the center of the vadas while shaping them.

serve bread vada with pudina chutney or coconut chutney.

INGREDIENTS FOR bread vada

(1 CUP = 250 ML)
  • 5 slices of bread - whole wheat or multigrain or brown or white bread
  • cup chopped onions
  • 1 inch ginger - finely chopped OR 1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
  • 1 to 2 green chilies - chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped coriander leaves
  • 8 to 10 curry leaves (kadi patta) - chopped
  • teaspoon black pepper - crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1 pinch asaofetida (hing)
  • 1 pinch turmeric powder (haldi)
  • ¼ cup fresh curd (dahi or yogurt)
  • 3 tablespoons rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons fine sooji (rava or cream of wheat)
  • salt as required - do keep a check as bread already has salt in it
  • oil for deep frying

HOW TO MAKE bread vada

preparing bread vada mixture

  • take 5 slices of bread and break them. add in a grinder jar.
  • pulse or grind to get a texture like bread crumbs.
  • take the bread crumbs in a mixing bowl.
  • add ⅓ cup chopped onions, 1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger, 1 or 2 green chilies (chopped), ¼ cup chopped coriander leaves, 8 to 10 curry leaves (chopped).
  • also add ⅛ teaspoon black pepper (crushed), ¼ teaspoon cumin seeds and a pinch of asafoetida.
  • now add 3 tablespoons rice flour, 2 tablespoons fine sooji (rava or cream of wheat), ¼ cup fresh curd and salt as per taste. keep a check on salt as bread already has salt in it.
  • mix very well first.
  • then begin to knead to a smooth dough. you may not need to add water as the curd and the moisture from the onions helps in binding the dough. if you are not able to bind to a dough, then sprinkle some water and knead to form a smooth dough.
  • divide the dough in to small or medium sized balls and then flatten them. keep aside.

frying bread vada

  • heat oil for deep frying in a kadai. check the oil temperature by dropping a small portion of the batter in the oil. if the small vada comes up steadily and quickly, the oil is hot enough for frying.
  • now carefully slid the prepared vadas in the hot oil.
  • fry the bread vadas till crisp and golden. 
  • when the onions on the crust of the vada, look golden, this means the vada is done.
  • once nicely crisp and golden, then remove the bread vadas with a slotted spoon.
  • place them on kitchen paper towels to get rid of extra oil. fry the remaining bread vadas this way in batches.
  • serve bread vadas hot with tomato ketchup or mint chutney or coriander chutney or with coconut chutney.

    • you can. it won’t be oil if you bake in oven. just brush some oil on the vadas and then bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees celsius, till the vadas are golden and crisp.

  1. Awesome recipe.. my vadas turned out cute and tasty! Loved it…
    Your recipes are easy to understand and make while the pictorial explanations are of a great help!
