Thayir vadai

  Some leftover medhu vadai were sleeping in my fridge.... so I thought of preparing my husband‘s favorite Thayir vadai  today. I am also big fan of  this vadai. It is very simple and tasty to eat.snacks.


  • Medhu vadai – 4 to 5
  • Curd / yogurt – 1 cup+2tsp
  • Green chilies – 1 (adjust to your taste)
  • Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Coconut grated – ¼ cup
  • Onion chopped – ¼ cup
  • Kaaraboondhi- ¼ cup
  • Carrot grated – handful

  1. First heat water in a pan and put medhu vadai one by one into it and leave if for few seconds and take it out. Squeeze the water out.
  2. Then grind cumin, green chilies and coconut in a mixer grinder, grind it smooth.
  3. Mix the grounded paste to one cup curd.
  4. Then arrange the medhu vadai in a plate and pour the curd mixture over it. Let it rest for 2 to 3 hours.
  5. Before serving, add chopped onion, grated carrot, karaboondhi and 2 tsp curd.
Note: You can also add omapodi , clilantro and cucumber if you wish.
