About Kayi Vade Using Gobindobhog Rice

Kayi vade or coconut rice vada a crispy flavored delicacy from coastal Karnataka. These are deep fried poories using ground coconut, soaked rice and masala. It has a unique flavor of coconut. I learnt this recipe from my mother-in-law. According to my mother-in-law using the soaked rice gives a nice flavor to the vade. In this recipe I have used Gobindobhog rice which has a unique buttery flavor. This adds to the flavor of kayi vade. Kayi vade can be stored for 2 days in airtight containers. This recipe is in association with “Belly Nirvana” organized by plattershare and PlaceofOrigin.in – Indian Tastes Delivered.
