Mix all the ingredients well and form a soft dough.  If necessary, add little curd if the dough is too dry.  Divide the dough into equal portions to a lemon sized ball.    Take a one small ball and gently flatten them a bit.  If required, grease your palm with little oil to avoid stickiness.  Make a small hole in centre of the vada.  Repeat with the rest of the dough.

Heat sufficient oil in a heavy bottomed pan or kadai.  Once the oil becomes hot, gently slide the vadas and deep fry them on medium flame till golden brown on both the sides.

Serve instant bread medu vada hot with coconut chutney or sambar



Use bread of any variety like brown bread, multigrain bread,  white bread or leftover bread.

You can add a pinch of baking soda for making it more fluffy.

Add vegetables of your choice like grated carrot or capsicum for a healthier version.

You can also add black pepper or small coconut pieces for more flavour.

If the batter becomes watery, add more rice flour and rava and knead to a soft dough.
