Salem thattu vadai set | thattai sandwich recipe

 Thattu-vadai-set

Thattu vadai set | thattai sandwich is a popular snack in Salem, a small town big city in Tamilnadu. My sister introduced me  this thattu vadai set as after her marriage she was staying in Salem for 8 years. My brother in law , is now in salem on an official transfer. My sister was insisting me to post this thattu vadai recipe here for a long time. I am bit lazy to make thattai and post this recipe. Last week when my mom came here she sent a packet of Salem thattai and finally i made it at home. I loved it very much and my kids too loved this. Instead of giving them the thattai for snack, for a change we can give this one as it has carrot and beetroot. If you have the chutneys and thattai ready you can make this snack quickly. I referred here for chutney recipes
