Raw Mango - Rice Vada

Rice - Raw Mango Vada is a fried dish. We can have them for breakfast or as snack in the evening. It is like like pooris and bit spicy, bit tangy and yummy to have them with ginger chutney. It is one of the good combination. Or you can have them with cup of hot coffee or tea.
I have used totapuri raw mango, coconut, green chilly and a pinch of asafoetida. (Ingh). We do prepare coconut rice vadas with little jaggery and a pinch of salt. Noemally raw rice is ground to paste and then added very little jaggery to give a just enough sweet taste. The vadas are so tasty that you can munch them anytime of the day during Mansoon.
Here I have used rice flour and spicy mango chutney to give out spicy and tangy taste. It does not take much of oil.
