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.
