Vada( Vegetable Lentils Fritters)  – Air fryer – Kids Lunch Box – 5 Ingredients 

Recipe for 18 

Every time I Prepare Lentils  vada I like to try with 2 or 3 lentils  and add some flour so that it’s easy for me to shape vada. They turned out crispy . Just soak for an hour and add other ingredients and prepare vada. Don’t refrigerate the batter it will change the taste . You don’t need any dip or chutney to enjoy these vada’s or  serve with Green Chutney or Dates Chutney . Don’t for get to add green chillies and ginger( Light color green chillies are Zero spicy and kids can enjoy too)  for a little spicy bite. Good for digestion. I like adding  some greens (Coriander or spinach or Methi or Amaranth leaves)  in my Vada’s and Pakora’s . Don’t skip any ingredient to enjoy these tasty Vada’s  .
