My daughter enjoys having vada with sauce but the problem is with my son. How to make him taste them? Flash….. I cut a burger bun into two halves and toast it slightly. Took out the buns and arranged lettuce, purple cabbage, cherry tomatoes and cheese layers on them. Then placed the vada along with sour cream and chilli sauce. I then closed the buns and served it to my son. He had it happily and my problem was solved:)
Yummy veggie burger…..with banana vada…..
Note: Not all vada are suitable for the burger.
