UTOPIA: Vadai

Vadai

Here's one "Vadai" that i had for dinner. It's a savoury fritter-type snack originated from South India but available anywhere here even at mamak stalls. First tried vadai when i was around 10 years old from some pasar malam in Sungai Besi old town...that was long...long...time ago. Another type of Vadai sold here have a hole in the middle, similar to donut but with a slightly smaller size.
Very rich in spices, some even have cili padi (bird's eye chili) for extra kick in the flavor & spicyness. One of my fav snack thus far.
BON APPETIT!

I love to eat vadai because I like the taste of the spices. The best I have eaten are bought from a van in Bangsar Baru.

I love this! Love the fragrance of the spices and herbs used in it. Very nice! 3 for RM1.00 at my regular Malay kuih stall here. Never really tried an authentic Indian one - we do not have that here.

Nice! It's Thaipusam, good to eat some Indian food. I love Indian sweets myself, they use a lot of ghee and milk and sugar, it's amazing! :)
