While browsing the blogs, i came across this bakarvadi, and the snap itself looked so tempting to me, that i decided i'll try it for sure sometime. But then as usual,i couldn't find that source again. Anyhow when google is there no fear...haha.
Intially when i saw the list of ingredients and its procedure, i was a little demoralized, but anyhow gave it a try, and then came these so nice looking and delicious vadis. I must say it was not so easy for me to make them , but my hubby liked them so much, that for sure i would cook them again...

1/2 cup gram flour (besan)

Take a chappati size lump, roll into thin chappati, roll it in a rectangle if u can, by rolling the edges thinner and then folding it like a envelope.
Use dry flour to help rolling.
Spread filling thinly all over chappati.
Roll the dough from the long end, keeping the roll as tight as possible.
Seal the long end with a touch of water
Cut into 1" pieces(i did cut to 1/2 inch only) and deepfry in hot oil.
Fry till cover is crisp and golden brown.
Drain, cool very well before storing in airtight containers.
Shelflife: 2 weeks
Tip: If filling tends to spill out while frying, sprinkle very little water on filling and mix to make it hold.
