After pledging to be strictly vegetarian for the rest of my life (it's been 3 easy months now) , I was hankering for some well-made Vadas and got handsomely rewarded with these beauties in Dosa Plaza, Botany Junction, Auckland. Amongst India's greatest contributions to the world, was , is and will be , mind-smashing vegetarian cuisine. In Pic : Vada (deep-fried savoury lentil cakes impeccably paired with sambhar and chutney). I told the restaurant owner what a fine job he had done considering how difficult it is to find good Vadas in NZ , and he told me that after achieving 40 minute-long queues for his joint in Australia , he had come to Auckland to revive the franchise and hit similar success. He's obviously on the right track :):)
