Whenever I visit my relations in Nagercoil, i used to get the Rasa Vadai from a famous restuarant in bus Stand . The vadai used to melt in the mouth along with the flavor of rasam. My mom used to make the same recipe and we all love it.I didnt go through all the steps to make vadai ,I bought the store bought one and added to my Rasam.Lot of Restuarants serve "Medhu Vadai" in rasam as 'Rasa Vadai' but that is not the original "Rasa Vadai'.For Rasa vadai i would prefer to use the 'Parupu Vadai' instead of the medhu vadai.
