Vathal is similar to Chips.

Vathal making is a long process. They are many kinds of vathal. For example, for arisi vathal (or vathal made out of rice) we will soak powdered rice in water, add spices and then dry them in hot sun by making small portions. Dried vathal are fried in oil (similar to chips) and served.
