Cow peas known as – Gaay Mutter in Hindi, Alasanda in telugu, Karamani Payir / Thatta Payir in tamil.

Alasanda Garelu are very famous in Rayalaseema part of Andhra state. It’s a popular street food. The rich falvours of the cowpeas will boost up further upon deep frying along with other ingredients. No doubt its an oily stuff but once in a while you can shelf your diet restriction to enjoy this delicious snack. I like it more than the medhu vadas and masala vadas….. The preparation is very easy except that you need to plan atleast half day in advance only to soak the cow peas.
