Cauliflower vadai

Learn how to make Cauliflower vadai recipe with full video and step by step pictures. This cauliflower vadai recipe is similar to the tea kadai masala vadai. The variation of adding cauliflower and spring onions makes this unique and tasty. You can make the same vadai in ulundu vadai style too. I made them as mini vadais, like small button ones which will be a sure hit in parties.

We South Indians make different varieties of vadai. I have posted many types of traditional vadai in jeyashris kitchen like, thavala vadai, arisi vadai, vazhaipoo vadai, milagu vadai and many more. I have still not figured out a right place to take videos in the new house here. Will soon get hold of that and post better videos.
