Heat oil in a pan,divide the batter into small balls.Flatten these balls to medium thickness like we do for regular masala vada.
Deep fry these vadas in medium hot oil till crisp & golden brown on all sides.
Remove them on a kitchen paper for excess oil to get absorbed.Serve them hot.
a) Do not add any water to the batter,the batter should look like a semi coarse batter.If your batter goes a bit watery add a teaspoon of rice flour to thicken the batter.
b) You can replace green chillies with red chillies.
c) For extra flavour you can add cinnamon stick,garlic,mint leaves.
d) Chopped cabbage can also be added to make it more healthier while giving the kids.
