But I would say it is a kind of fusion, South Indian food meets the North Indian Street food and the name is of the recipe is Medu Vada Chaat. Sounds yummy, isn’t it? The dish isn’t as elaborate as South Indian medu vada but instead is a quick snack that one can make at any gathering. Today I made it especially to consume during Paryushan. So I didn’t add green chutney, ginger, garlic or coriander but if you are trying this recipe otherwise then add the above ingredients for an added flavor.
