Recipe Notes

  • Measure all the ingredients like, curd, water and rice flour from the same cup. The ratio will be 1:1:1
  • You can skip onions if you do not like them in your medhu vada.
  • Make sure the oil is medium hot. If the oil is not hot enough then the medhu vada will not become crispy and will soak the oil. If its too hot then it will cook from the outside but remain uncooked from the inside.
