Lentil Vadai with Badam and Coconut Chutney- Breakfast Thali2

For the Second Day of Thali Menu,  i m posting Lentil Vadai with Badam and a Staple Chutney with all South-Indian Breakfast The Evergreen Coconut Chutney. Lentil Vadai, will be one of most non-preferable (read "hated") vadai amongst many. Ask anybody they will say they love soft medhu vadai/urad dal vadai. But try adding 4-5 badam/almonds to this recipe, next time they won't say No.
