I love vaddee and do you know how difficult it is to come by these delicious treats.
In temple the aunties are so stingy when they hand these out, its only 2 per person. it just tickles my tummy and they make them so small.
Now that I can make these beauties the aunties can keep their stash, I am bringing my own stash with me to temple next time.
