Dahi Vada

Happy Birthday Pintoo !

Dahi Vada, usually made on special occasions like Diwali, Holi, Birthdays or after fast feast.

Tasted good when served with a topping of Chilly powder, Jeera Powder and Imli chutney.


  • Soak 2-3 glass of Urad daal for 4-6 hours or overnight.
  • Make a thick or granular batter. It should not be of flowing consistency.
  • Add green chillies, chopped onions, chopped ginger, small coconut pieces & roughly torn curry patta.
  • Heat a pan of oil of deep fry.
  • Scoop a handful of batter, use thumb for center hole and slide into the heated oil.

  • Once all are ready, drop some of them i na bowl full of water.
  • Leave some vadas as sukha. Most of children would love to chomp on that.

  • Once all vadas have soaked water, take them off and press water out of each of them.
  • And drop the vadas in a bowl of curds.
  • Before serving, add fresh curds, and sprinkle chilli powder, jeera poder and a spoonful of imli chutney.
