Directions How to make KUMBDI VADE
Take a cup of rice flour and little salt and turmeric powder. Add little oil and mix the ingredients well. Add enough warm water and knead into firm dough. Make marble sized balls and keep aside. Take a polythene sheet and lightly grease it. Place the ball of dough over it and lightly press with a flat surface plate or spread with the fingertips to a puri. Heat sufficient oil in a kadai and deep-fry the vade on medium heat till golden. Drain the pooris and serve hot with chicken curry.
