My Tip:

Chef Tips: 01. You may sprinkle chat masala on the fried badas ( vadas) before serving them. 02. Increase the quantity of either red chilli powder or green chillies, if you desire to have very spicy badas (vadas). 03. Batter should not be of flowing consistency, it it turns a little watery add more bengal gram flour. 04. You may add turmeric powder and a little red chilli powder to the batter, if desired.
