as i was explaining earlier, it has strong similarities between the soft and crisp medu vada recipe. however, there are many visible differences too. to begin with, the texture of the recipe is totally different. this recipe has to offer more hard and crisp texture whereas the medu vada is on the soft and crisp in texture. in addition, the ingredients used in both the recipes are completely different. i have used the combination of poha and rava soaked in sour buttermilk. rava helps to give the crispiness, poha helps to bind and the buttermilk helps to give the flavour, taste and character to this recipe. moreover, the shape looks very similar to each other, yet there are some minor differences. this recipe is flat in shape whereas the medu vada is puffier in shape and texture.

furthermore, i would also like to highlight some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the instant mor vadai. firstly, with respect to shape, you do not have to necessarily shape it like a doughnut. you can shape it like a disk or to any other shape as per your preferences. the doughnut-like shape makes it more attractive and appealing. secondly, try to use sour curd or yoghurt to prepare the buttermilk. if you use sour curd, the sourness taste goes into the vada to have a combination of flavour and taste. lastly, avoid overcrowding while deep frying. deep fry them in small batches and use low to medium hot oil. low heat helps to achieve crisp texture. you can use an airtight container to improve the shelf life.
