I love fried items especially bhajji , dalvada , vada panv , parripu vada and much more. Naming the dishes itself bringing water in my mount and make my tummy grumbling.
In India, during monsoon at home we make some fried stuff and eat while watching rain. My mother in law makes this yummy dish which so close to dalvada that whenever I eat it reminds me of my home and growing up memories.
