anjaneyar kovil vadai
Milagu Vadai 

Today's special recipe is a deep fried snack made of urad dal and pepper corns. Its very popularly known as Milagu Vadai or Anjaneyar Kovil Vadai. It got its name as its a traditional prasadam offered in Anjaneyar temple all over the world. In Tamil, its famous as மிளகு வடை. I usually prepare it for Hanuman Jayanthi festival and we would make a vada malai (garland) with this snack! Also it serves as a best healthy delicious Indian recipe served as a tea time snacks. I love to munch milagu vadai on cold rainy days along with garma garam masala chai:)
