Tamil month "Masi" is the perfect time for making papad, vathal and vadam. The main reason is the warm weather in the morning. In summer, even at 6am it would so hot and we couldn't be able to make vadam. Though, I'm staying abroad, here the weather is so perfect this month and hence I started with making vathal and vadam. Vathal are always so crunchy and made with some vegetables. We can make vathal using ladysfinger, bitter gourd, Ivygourd, cluster beans etc. Just a 2 step process and you would have a nice homemade crunchy and yummy Sun Dried Cluster Beans(Kothavarangai Vathal) Ready!
