    Do not add water as yogurt is enough to bind the ingredients.
    Add shredded cabbage and spinach to make bread vada healthy.
    Adjust chilli powder and green chillies as per your preferred spice levels.
    You can break bread into small pieces with hands instead of crumble them blender.
    Not just fresh bread even stale or leftover bread can be used.
    Do not prepare the dough in advance or allow it to sit for long time as yogurt and onion releases moisture which makes vada to break while frying in oil. Always prepare the dough and fry vadas immediately.
