My Tea Time Snacks – Vada from leftover Idli/Dosa Batter (Fritters) – Easy vadai

My Tea Time snacks was a simple and tasty snack from the leftover Idli/Dosa batter. Sometimes I get bored with the Idli and dosa. But there will be some batter left after making Idli on first day and Dosa on the second day. I don’t want to go for dosa/Idli another day bcoz I feel so lazy to cook it again. So I usually prefer to go for the Kuzhi paniyaram or this version of  snack. You can amaze everyone with this vada. If you are so diet conscious go for the Kuzhi paniyaram or if you want a crispy snack for your tea time go for this vada.

Idli/Dosa batter – 2 Cup
Onion – 1(medium sized, chopped)
Green chillies – 3(chopped)
Chopped Ginger – 1 tbsp

Salt to taste
Baking soda – a pinch
Oil for frying


1.Take Idli/Dosa batter in a bowl. To it add chopped onions, green chillies and ginger. Add a pinch of baking soda to it. Check for salt and add accordingly. Mix well. Add rice flour to get a thick vada batter consistency. I used 3 tbsp of rice flour as I used Dosa batter.
2.Heat Oil in a kadai/frying pan. Check for the correct temperature by dropping a small piece of batter to it. It shouldn’t sink down. It should start floating. Take a tablespoonful of batter and drop it into the oil with a spoon or hand.The vadas will start to fluff up. When it is golden on one side flip to the other side. Fry until golden on both sides.
Serve hot with Coconut Chutney and a cup of Tea/Coffee
