Fluffy, golden-coloured vadas might taste good as such, but they taste even better when made into tongue-tickling Dahi Vadas.


Soak the vadas in water to make them softer; drown them in sweetened curds; and serve with a drizzling of khajur imli ki chutney and a sprinkling of spice powders. If you wish, you can garnish the Dahi Vadas more elaborately with sev or south Indian mixture, finely chopped onions, and so on.


Can be served as a side dish to the Main Course .

   Hi Chanchal, The batter must be little watery, that is the reason while frying it has split. to rectify it, you can add little rice flour, like 1 or 2 tbsp to make it thick..

The most famous and favourite chat..I love curd so this recipe is always in my menu when i have a party..I make small sized wada so it is easier to mke and quick to..I also add powdered sugar to curds and a tempering of mustard and curry leaves,..which tastes just out of the world.Do try it..
