If you have been seeing Batata Vadas appear in some of the food blogs you read and wondering what is up with that, here is what is at the root of it all – old fashioned indulgence. A year ago, while discussing this and that on this blog, I and my readers decided a party was in order – an old fashioned yet not completely throw-caution-to-the-winds party. Celebrating food without worrying about what went into it, or got left out; being intuitive instead of thoughtful. It lead to a bunch of us frying poori last year, some for the first time!
This year we are experimenting with frying batata vadas, some of us for the first time! The motive, again, has been to cook and share with friends and family, and remind ourselves that a little indulgence is a good thing. And, of course, have some fun while we were frying!
