Snack recipe  @

These are cubed bread slices, spiced with green chili, onion, cumin and cilantro together with rice flour, semolina and yogurt as a binder.  They are combined to shape like a doughnut.

After shaping with greased hands, Bread Vada are fried in oil till golden brown, I did mine by shallow fryingcan also be deep fried.

Adjust the heat according to your tolerance. These tasted heavenly for breakfast or as a snack immediately after you've fried them.

Serve them as it is or dip with your favorite chutney

These look so great! I love vadas! I usually buy them frozen from the Indian markets in Artesia, California but with the stay at home order, I can't drive two hours to buy frozen vadas so I may have to try this at home! Hopping over from the blog hop for a visit. Have a good week!
