bread vada recipe

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 mint chutney or coconut chutney.

How to make bread vada

1. Take 5 slices of bread and break them. Add in a grinder jar.

8. 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.

10. 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.
