Much better alternative to Fried batata vadas. It is a pretty innovative version of fried vadas. However, it is still high in calories and carbohydrates so consume occasionally.

I really had my doubts to eat a non fried batata vada. Especially because the dish is so tasty because it is fried! But this recipe really retains that wonderful chatpata-ness of the batata vadas and it makes it a more healthy snack too! So kudos :)
