Alasanda Vada Recipe 2 | Bobbarlu Vada | Black Eyed Peas (Lobia) Fritters

>>  Thursday, May 3, 2012

Life can be really a challenge when you are alone and have planned to do certain things. Yet so many other things come up that you hardly find yourself doing them. I planned to blog this Alasanda Vada a while back, yet after two hours I found myself where I began. 

Alasanda Vada is a very famous deep fried fritters from Andhra. And I have already blogged about it when Athamma made it first. I have many nostalgic memories related with Alasandallu and there is never a time that passes by that I don't remember them when I think of Black Eyed Pea. Though Amma used to make these regularly during our childhood, I was surprised that I haven't blogged about the way Amma makes. Of course today's recipe is also not the actually one from what I remember but rather with a twist that she found to be quite useful

So while I contemplate on how else I will occupy myself, I will leave you to enjoy the delicious snacks I managed to click pictures.

I know the pictures turned out to be little more dark than I expected. Well I couldn't really expect it to be better as it was pretty late when I clicked these pictures and there were serious treat of these disappearing. so I did the best I could.

We often make Alasanda pappu cutlet at home as we get plenty of them from our farm. I thought of giving a try after making kollu vada. Now I am tempted so much to prepare after seeing this vada. Looks very additive.
