Poha Vada (Flattened Rice Vada)

Few days back I stuck in a situation when family desired to have Vada with Sambhar and I didn't have the batter. So I thought and came up with an innovative concept to make Vada from Poha i.e. flattened rice (also known as Chura in some places). This is easily digestible and easily available.
