Instant Bread Vada

Instant bread vada is an easy to make and a quick snack that can be made using bread slices. These vadas are instantly made as they do not require any prior soaking or time consuming preparation. Inspired by authentic Medu Wadas, these Instant bread vada are made mainly using bread. They are crispy from outside and soft inside bursting with flavours. It is a prefect recipe if you want to use leftover bread at home.

I have used brown bread here in the recipe. You can use any bread of your choice. Apart from the main ingredient bread, the other three ingredients which are indispensable part of this recipe are semolina(sooji), rice flour and curd. The sooji & rice flour makes the vadai crispier and curd is required for overall binding of the ingredients. Rest ingredients like onion, green chillies, ginger and spices are for flavouring. You can add curry leaves or even adjust the quantity of spices as per your taste.

This Instant bread wada recipe is ideal for breakfast, kids tiffin or as party snacks. Hope you would like the recipe!!

Ingredients: (Makes 12 pieces)

  • Bread Slices-6
  • Semolina/Sooji-1/4 cup
  • Rice flour-1/2 cup
  • Medium Onion-1
  • Ginger-1 inch piece
  • Green Chilli-1 
  • Chopped Coriander Leaves-2 tbsp
  • Chilli Powder-1 tsp
  • Black Pepper-1/2 tsp
  • Jeera Powder-1/4 tsp
  • Salt-2tsp (or to taste)
  • Curd- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp
  • Baking Soda-1/4 tsp
  • Oil - For Frying & greasing

Steps To Prepare:

Chop off the hard edges of bread slices.
Tear down the bread slices into pieces.
Transfer the bread pieces into a mixing bowl .Add Semolina and Rice flour to the bread pieces. Mix well. Keep it aside.
Finely chop off onion, ginger and green chillies.
Add chopped veggies along with the baking soda and spices to the bread pieces which were kept aside in step 3.
Add curd to the mixture and knead it into soft dough.
Grease you hands with oil and make small balls out of the dough.
Pick the balls one by one. Flatten them gently on your palm into a 3" inches circle and create a small hole gently using your fingers.
This is the step where you fry these vadas. The main thing to care about here is how you grease your hands. You can use either water or oil for greasing your hands. I personally like the results when you use water for greasing your hands but you can use oil also as it reduces any chances of oil spluttering due to oil-water contact.
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Dip your fingers in water bowl so that they get wet (we don't want fingers with dripping water). 
Lift vada from the plate and place it on your fingers of other hand as shown below. Reshape it if required. 
Drop it in the oil gently from one side of the kadhai (buy here). You literally have to just slide the vada from your hands into the kadhai.
Fry it from both sides till it is golden brown on medium heat.

  3. The primary thing you have to settle is the limit of toaster that will be adequate for your necessities. There are a few sizes of toasters and some of them incorporate red 4 cut toasters, 6 cut toasters, and 2 cut toasters, just to say a couple.bread machines

  4. Overripe and unripe fruit can spoil the flavor of jam by making it slightly sour or acrid. For new flavor combinations, use fruits that have similar levels of acidity. bread machines
