I grow methi and sarson in my kitchen garden a lot. So using them always in my most of the cooking is obvious for me. That way family gets greens too free of cost. Lot many times I grow methi n sarson together to use mix of them. Most of it goes in parantha or kadhi making but this time I thought of using them in vadas too.
Trust me the turnout taste was amazingly outstanding. If you really wish to give a tasty twist to your humble vada than please try this recipe. 🙏🏻
