I would love to have something to munch on during evening tea especially during weekends. Masala vadais with tea or coffee is an awesome combination. As I kid whenever such things were made at home I used to run up and down the house, grabbing a vadais now and then and eating it non stop. This will usually be the scene at home when we cousins are together for summer vacation. Masala vadais brings back nostalgic memories of Summer Vacation.
