anyway, some more tips suggestions and variations for a perfect crispy, instant medu vada recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend using sandwich white bread slices made out of plain flour. do not use wheat flour-based one or multi-grain as you may not be able to shape or may dissolve while deep frying. secondly, if you find difficult while shaping it and especially to have a hole in the middle, you may skip it and shape it like a round disc. there isn’t any benefit in shaping like a doughnut. lastly, while deep frying, do not overcrowd the frying pan and try to have a sufficient gap between each vada. also, the oil has to be in medium flame so that vada’s get cooked evenly.
