Protein Masala Vada (Baked) Nuggets

This is a baked recipe works as snack protein. As you know, in authentic recipe we use dal (lentils) to prepare masala vada, but we should not eat lentils in IP diet due to high carbs along with protein. So here I made this with only proteins, it taste different when compared to real vada because there is no lentil carbs here, but still for a change you can try this for snack.
