    Hello Kirti, Thanks for posting this authentic Nagpur style Sambhar vadi recipe. I ahve been searching for this recipe forever. I miss Sambhar vadi a lot since this particular style of street food is not so popular outside of Vidarbha region and specifically in the US. Thanks a bunch again for the recipe



    oh yes ur right mital..thanks for correcting my mistake,its 2 cup of maida & not 2 tsp. once again thanks lot.


    Hi, the recipe looks gr8 but i guess maida shud be 2 cups instead of 2 tsps as written. kindly confirm


    Hi Kirti, This is an interesting recipe. I have one question. You have mentioned 2 tsp maida in the ingredient list. I guess it is 2 cup maida. Let me know the correct amount of maida for this recipe. Thanks.
