Instant Bread Vada by Divya Jain

 Inspired by authentic Medu Vadas, these Instant bread vada are made mainly using bread.

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. 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.

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


  • Chop off the hard edges of bread slices.
  • Tear down the bread slices into pieces.
  • 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 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 both hand palm in water bowl. Squeeze any extra 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. 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.

Enjoy vadai with coconut chutney or green chutney!
