Red Cabbage Vada – Paniyaram Style recipe

Side Dishes Snacks

I like vadas. I try those in different ways. I usually make cabbage vada like any other vada (deep frying in oil). But this time I tried to make those in Paniyaram (Paddu in Kannada and Gunta ponganalu in Telugu) Pan. To my surprise, it was not all bad. It came out well. One small lesson learned. Urad dal takes some time to cook, so it’s better to pour less amount of batter. Other than that, the taste was good like usual vada, but in different shape.
