Medu Vada, a typical south Indian delicacy is a must in every South Indian household for breakfast or tea time snacks. These are often referred as savoury donuts because of the shape resembling donuts. Many people like me don’t need any thing else as accompaniment to just gobble it down. These are so addictive that you cant stop munching with one.

Serve Medu Vada with Onion with South Indian Coconut Chutney for a delicious breakfast.
