Baked Masala vadai | Baked paruppu vadai recipe – Healthy, easy-baked version of tea kadai masal vadai recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures. Crispy Baked masala vadai recipe

Masala vada | masala vadai is one of our favorite snacks and we usually make it by deep-frying it. I have posted baked pakoras a few years back. Ever since I wanted to try out a baked version of masala vadais. I have seen my co-participant making this in a Cookery show a few years back in Singapore. The vadai is the same one as to how we make our usual tea kadai masala vadai. Instead of deep-frying this, we are going to bake this.

I tried this yesterday and it turned out very well and everyone at home loved it. I just used 3 tbsp of oil in total for 12 vadas. How nice right! Even if you want to make paruppu vadais for festivals, you can skip the onions and garlic. You can add cabbage to this and make it as cabbage vadai too.
