How to Make Bread Vada At-a-Glance:

When I made these fritters for the first time, I was wondering how I could quickly make these vadas. It took about 20 minutes to make these yummy snacks for four people. The best part is that all the ingredients were already in my kitchen.

Now, I want to share the recipe for making these fritters with you. Start it by chopping the bread slices into tiny bits. You can just tear them with your fingers. Add finely chopped onion, cabbage, grated carrot, finely chopped mint & coriander leaves, red chili powder, chopped green chilies, garam masala powder, coriander powder, cumin, rice flour, and salt. Mix the ingredients, adding very little water to get a firm dough.

Divide the dough into lemon-sized balls. Make patties out of them. Deep fry in hot oil till they are crispy or till they turn golden brown. Remove, and place them on an absorbent paper towel. Serve hot and crunchy vadas with tomato sauce. They are extremely delicious. Enjoy munching them!
