Bread Crumbs Vadai

Bread Crumbs Vadai

It’s always very interesting to create recipes using leftovers. I had leftover Medhu vadai batter, but I was not very keen to make medhu vadai again. Also, I had saved the bread corners to make crumbs. So, I created a new recipe with both the leftover ingredients. Recipe fell in place as I thought over it. As always, like all my recipes, this also is a very simple one, needs only basic ingredients and of course very easy to make. Bread crumbs vadai came out very well. It was soft and had a melt in mouth texture. I am really delighted to share this recipe with all of you 😊

Do try. Trust me, this is what you will be making whenever you will be left with some vadai batter and bread crumbs.

This will make a delicious evening snack or a party starter dish. As it also is a protein rich dish, will be an excellent choice as snack for children and young adults 😊
