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 .
- Combine the urad dal, green chillies, ginger and salt in a mixer and grind to a smooth paste using approx. ¼ cup of water.

- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry 3 vadas at a time till they turn light golden brown in colour from all the sides.
- Drain on absorbent paper. Keep aside.
- Combine the curd and the sugar in a bowl, mix well and keep the sweetened curd aside.
- Take enough water in a deep bowl and soak the vadas in it for 15 minutes.

- Top with a little chilli powder, 1 tbsp of khajur imli ki chutney, a little cumin seeds powder and black salt.
