The Rava Vada is a very popular South Indian snack, which has a unique taste and fabulous texture. Moreover, it is very quick and easy because you do not have to prepare a batter. So, you can make this without any fuss when a sudden guest arrives.

The semolina-curd dough gives the Rava Vada a wonderful crispness while readily-available but thoughtfully combined ingredients like ginger, green chillies, herbs and coconut give it a lingering flavour and super aroma.

You can fry 4-5 vadas at a time. Drain and serve them hot with coconut chutney.

You can also try other snacks like Malgapodi Idli and Masala Vadas .
