PALAK CURD VADA


Vada in curd ‘known to be ‘Thayir Vada’ in

South Indian cuisine, is like comfort food

during hot summer days.

As urad dal is protein rich and curd is a

probiotic ,calcium rich healthy food ,having

this combination for breakfast contributes to

healthy living.

This combination of food is also considered to

be an alkalising agent.

I make this dish for breakfast at least once a

week,and today I thought to make it ‘green‘ by

adding spinach leaves .The addition of spinach

made the vadas super soft and tasty .

Let me share this recipe with you !

METHOD

hour.
