Spread a plastic sheet or cloth.Take 1 tsp amount of vadam and keep it in the sheet,you can use the hand and arrange it .complete it with remaining mix. once done leave it for a day to dry it in hot sun. Same day evening take out and change to a big plate.
Next day keep the plate in the hot sun. Repeat this for 2 days or till the vathal becomes completely dry.
Now the vadam is ready ,store it in a dry air tight bottle.Whenever required take it out and fry in oil ,serve it.
