Instant Red Rice Flakes Vadas/Instant Poha Onion Vadas

If you want something crispy, an excellent munchies for your cup of tea or coffee for your evening snacks, you should check my today's instant vadas loaded with onions. Very simple to make, these vadas are completely instant and no grinding is needed. Apart from chopping onions and green chillies, these crispy poha aka rice flakes vadas are very quick to prepare. Usually vadas are prepared by soaking dals for more than two hours and grinding them as bit coarse paste or smooth paste depending the dals. These poha vadas are prepared by just soaking thin rice flakes for just few minutes. Once they are soaked , drain them and mash them nicely with your fingers to make as a thick paste, add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies and spices to the paste, shape them as vadas and fry them. How easy na.

Usually white rice flakes is used for dishing out these crispy fritters, however thin red rice flakes works fabulous though the colour of the vadas will be bit dark in colour than the white rice flakes. Served with a spicy chutney, trust me these instant vadas makes an excellent munchies for your morning breakfast or for your evening snacks. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Instant dishes as theme. After a delicious, Andhra style tomato pickle, my today's post goes to this dangerously addictive poha aka flattened rice flakes vadas. I have added loads of onions to make these vadas more delicious, in case if you want to make them healthy, dont hesitate a second to add some grated vegetables to make this vadas more colourful and healthy.
