Uzhunnu Vada(revisited) with Coconut Chutney

I was not satisfied with the pics of Uzhunnu Vada which  I had posted earlier. So here comes the next version with some coconut chutney. I was relying on the store bought coconut chutney distributed by Deep. And one fine day I was out of stock and then came back to my mom’s good own recipe.

For Uzhunnu Vada, I followed the same old measures. Please link back my old post for the recipe.

Serve with hot Vadas. This goes well with idly, dosa, upma etc. I add more water if preparing for idly or dosa.
