Aval vadai | Poha vadai recipe

Aval vadai | Poha vadai recipe, a simple and easy no grinding crispy vadai recipe , with full video and step by step instructions.

Aval vadai recipe is a super easy vadai recipe, which you can prepare with very minimum ingredients at home. You can make this vadais, when you have sudden guests at home. I made this as a no onion no garlic version.

This vadai is made with 2 main ingredients, poha | aval, and curd. Aval vadai stays crisp for a few hours after frying. Usually, we soak urad dal or chana dal for making vadai which needs advanced planning.

This is an instant poha vadai similar to the pottukadalai vadai I shared a few months back. This is a perfect teatime snack and a party starter too.

Notes

1.You can add besan instead of rice flour, but besan makes the vadai softer.
2. Do not soak the aval in curd for more time than mentioned, it will make the dough dry.
3. Aval vadais stay crisp even after few hours.
