It may sound childish but believe it or not I was a person who was scared of deep frying things just because I was simply scared of hot oils :) But gradually I am overcoming that fear and has started deep frying things on my own but with all precautions ! I always use a spoon to put things in hot oil and also while taking things out from hot oil, I use 2 spoons ,one for taking it out and other one to protect the thing from falling back in :) Sounds crazy right ?
Anyway coming to today's post, its a precious deep fried onion vada which I made few days before when a blogger friend of mine visited my place with her hubby.Perfect to munch on a rainy day with hot cup of masala tea !
