Here is how I make my dahi vadas:


Preparation20 min
Cook time20 min
  • Grind to a smooth paste the urad dal. Whisk it with a pinch of baking powder and plain salt. Add just a wee bit of the chopped ginger, coriander, green chilies, cashew nuts, raisins, cumin seeds, and black peppercorns.
    Heat oil in a wok, make small, bite-size dumplings of the dal batter and fry till golden brown. I usually stick a toothpick at the center of the dumplings to check if they are done. Its best to fry them in batches and not crowd the wok/pan.
    Dip the dal dumplings in water for 1-2 minutes and squeeze out the water between your palms, readying them for the yogurt dip!
    In a blender, churn the yogurt, black salt and sugar to taste. Plate the flattened dumplings in a dish and pour the yogurt mix. Garnish with all the chopped ingredients and chill.
    Drizzle some tamarind chutney, sprinkle roasted cumin powder, red chili powder and serve the Dahi Vadas.
