Another tasty evening snacks recipe that I like.

Dahi Vada


  1. Soak 1 cup  urad dal in water for 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Wash and drain the urad dal and grind it to a smooth paste in a blender.
  3. Add a pinch of cooking soda  and salt to the urad dal paste and mix well till the batter is light and fluffy. Add 2 tsp each of finely chopped ginger , green chillies, curry leaves and coconut. You can also add ginger, chillies to the urad dal while grinding it but I like the crunchiness and hence don’t grind them.
  4. Take oil in a kadhai for deep frying. Wet your hands with water and take around 1 tbsp of the batter and shape it into a circle and drop them into the hot oil. Cook the vadas on a slow flame till they are golden brown. This should take 7-8 mins for each batch.
  5. Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside . The vadas can be served with chutney as an evening snack. We call it biscuit ambado in Konkani.
  6. Soak the vadas in warm water for 10-15 mins. Take 2 cups curd, whisk it. Add salt, pinch of sugar, cumin powder, rock salt, chilli powder, and amchur powder according to taste.
  7. Remove the vadas from water and squeeze out the water and add it to the curd.
  8. Garnish with finely chopped coriander and serve.
