This thought drag me to give this innovative successful recipes which turned out to a big hit in my family..Give a try & let me know your comments.

Note: Always use mini pasta for this recipe( I used macaroni flower pasta). Mix all the ingredients, if it is not sticky, drizzle some water.
If dough is more sticky add extra flour.
This vadai is similar to masala vadai very tasty and crispy and  consume less oil.
