HAPPY NEW YEAR!
A very happy and prosperous new year to everyone. I have been in the kitchen a lot last year but, blogging had not happened. Call it my new year resolution, I hope to blog regularly this year. This evening it was raining and the weather was perfect for some crunchy munchies. So I made some instant vadai. I use poha often but this time I used the thick variety which resulted in in the best textured vadai. After many hours it still stays crunchy so if you are thinking of appetizers for a party please make this and all you may have to do is heat in the microwave and serve. A noteworthy recipe to document and share for the new year.
