Salem Thattuvadai Set/Nippat Sandwich

Print Friendly and PDF
thattu vadai set 3

Thattuvadai set is a most popular street food in Salem,Tamilnadu.Being a Salem girl,I used to have this snack at least once in a week before my marriage.Last week i went to my mom's place and bought few thattuvadai set for my family.I captured the making at that time and added a video here.I asked the guy about the chutney ingredients.He told the recipe roughly & he said this chutney stays good only for 3 hours.So make it fresh and serve.Based on his recipe,i tried it on my own. It came out well. If u buy a packet of readymade thattu vadai , making this set would be very easy and quick. But I prepared everything by my own including thattu vadai. So i found it a bit time consuming. Finally i was very much satisfied with the outcomeHappy
