MT, i love the way u have used spinach to make these vadas. a nice twist to common vadas we make with idlies and i am surely gonna try this one. i can also think of using methi leaves and other green leafy vegetables in place of spinach. see my mind has already started working and my tummy is crying;)

Linda said...

Hi and thanks again, MT, for another wonderful dish for JFI-Toor Dal! The vadas look so crispy and delicious, spinach makes them extra yummy I'm sure :)

Meera said...

Latha Narasimhan said...

Dear MT this was the recipe copied by one bhooma, who started a new blog! She also copied my puzhungarisi vadai! I left a note saying she has copied from our blogs, and she removed with in an hour! Read my post on plagarism! I think I too should display the plagarism sign on my side bar!
