Bread Onion Vada

Vade, also known as wada or vade or vadai or bara. Vada is a savoury fritter-type snack from South India. Vadas can vary in shape and size, but are usually either doughnut- or disc-shaped and are between 5 and 8 cm across. They are mainly made from dal, lentil, gram flour or potato. The Vada is a traditional South Indian food known from antiquity. Although they are commonly prepared at home, Vadas are as well a typical street food in the Indian Subcontinent and Sri Lanka. They are usually a high calorie morning food, very popular in street stalls and in railway stations, as well as inside the Indian Railways, they are available as a snack all day. It is known as Vades in South Africa, where a large south Indian population is found. Today I am making that same delicious Vada with a easy twist. I am sure you will like this delicious quick and easy bread onion vada.
