Thanks for the recipe. I''m confused though. People have commented about the vadas being non-fried but the recipe says to deep fry the vadas. Help. Does it have anything to do with soaking them in water afterwards?????

Easy recipe. If you use a wet grinder to grind the urad dal, you can skip adding soda. The non-fried dahi vadas come out so well, that now i do not make these fried dahi vadas.
