Instead of deep-frying, you can also shallow fry the bajra vada or even make flatbreads and roast them on a tava/skillet. The recipe has some whole wheat flour added to it. If you are allergic to gluten, then just skip adding whole wheat flour.

Serve bajra vada With plain curd or spiced curd or with tea. They can also be packed for picnics or travels. They stay well in an airtight jar or box for 8 to 10 days.

Here I have added methi leaves in it, but it is optional. you can make plain vada as well. If you skip the methi then you might need little more water to knead the dough.
