3.Make balls out of the above mixture, shape them as vadas or cutlets.
4. Grease a baking tray and line the vadas. Sprinkle 1 or 2 drops of oil on top of each vada.
5. Bake it in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
6. Serve hot with mint chutney or eat as such.

– The same vadas can be made by deep frying too.
– Use a parchment paper in the baking tray to remove the vadas easily.
– You can make the vada mixture and refrigerate too. But it will absorb lot of oil. So try making the mixture only       when needed.
