Thavala vadai is a famous recipe from Tanjore brahmins.. The speciality of this thavala vadai is making it in Irumbu Satti on medium flame and to have as evening snacks between 3 to 4 pm. Rama's Cafe in Andar Street, Trichy and Tirunelveli Mittai Kadai near Madley Subway, T.Nagar are famous in making Thavalai Vadai still now. One can feel the real taste in these shops. Some can question what is difference between Thavala Vadai and paruppu vadai. But the speciality in thavala vadai is there is no onion / pepper / sago / jeera in Thavala Vadai. In those days, 30 years back, once we reach home after school, my Dad used to make once in 15 days, we used to finish everything in minutes. Since he was from Tanjore, he used to explain the making of Thavala Vadai.... and here goes the ingredients and recipe, which is still in my memory.

Channa Dhal - 150 gms
Paasi Paruppu - 50 gms

Green chilly & Red Chilly - 2 each (according to spicy level)
Coconut - 1/2 moodi
Ginger - 1 inch size

Make it into vadai and deep fry in Oil in flat irumbu chatti, as it maintains heat on medium flame. Special Thavala Vadai is ready to serve.
