Methi vada recipe | crispy methi vada | how to make methi vada | dahi chutney recipe

It is one of the easiest and crispy vada made with fresh methi leaves, Besan (Gram Flour), and regular Spices. They are slightly spicy, crispy, and mouth-melting when just taken out from hot oil. I also share a new style of dahi-coriander chutney which taste great with vada. It is an ideal evening snack and it goes great during the cold winter or rainy season with a cup of hot tea. Do try this!

The key to making crispy methi vada at home are
  • Firstly, I made vada only with methi leaves and coriander leaves. but it can be easily extended by adding finely chopped palak leaves and also capsicum to make it crunchier.
  • I add some soaked murmura to make vada fluffy and softer. You can add poha instead of it.
  • vada batter should bind into a dough form. add water only if required to prepare the dough, as methi leaves will have moisture.
  • Lastly, Fry the vada on medium flame till it becomes crispy and golden brown from the outside.
