  • About

Isso (prawn) vadai, a popular snack or ‘short eat’ at Galle Face Green, are crisp, deep-fried lentil patties topped with small prawns, and doused with a tangy chilli sauce. Munching on a plate of these while the sun sets over the Indian Ocean certainly beats any five-star-restaurant experience. Many stalls sell prawn vadai; one popular with the locals is run by Rahuft and his uncle. This is their recipe.
