ABOUT Leftover cashew upma vada RECIPE

A delicious makeover to the boring leftover upma. Once the upma is cold no one is ready to have another serving and thus remains the poor upma. But this garelu or vada is a wonder in its form. Do try this twist. Crisp from outside and soft from within. You will want to make extra upma every time only to relish these vadas.
