My grandmother used to do vazhaipoo vada and vazhaipoo adai as vazhaipoo is very healthy. I try do this crunchy vada often and each time it turn out to be too good and much appreciated by all my family members. Then Vazhaipoo vadai became the default snacks for guest visits. You can also try Vazhaipoo vaidai instead of our conventional vadai as its different and will be appreciated by the visitors/guests. Please try and let me know your comments.
