  • Bread slices – 6
  • Rice flour – 1/2 cup
  • Rava or semolina or suji – 1/4 cup
  • Curd/Yoghurt – 1/2 cup
  • Cumin seeds/jeera – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Ginger – 1 inch - finely chopped or grated
  • Onion – 1 - small sized chopped finely
  • Green chillies – 2 - chopped finely
  • Few coriander leaves chopped finely
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying


  • Take the bread slices in a large mixing bowl and crumble them into small pieces. Then add rice flour, rava, curd, chopped onions, coriander leaves, grated ginger, cumin seeds, green chillies and salt.
  • Mix all the ingredients well and form a soft dough. If necessary, add little curd if the dough is too dry. Divide the dough into equal portions to a lemon sized ball. Take a one small ball and gently flatten them a bit.
  • If required, grease your palm with little oil to avoid stickiness. Make a small hole in centre of the vada. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Heat sufficient oil in a heavy bottomed pan or kadai. Once the oil becomes hot, gently slide the vadas.
