CURD is one versatile dish which can be used for so many dishes it is high in proteins and hence a must for all of us.. Dahi wada is an item which is commonly made in many homes and one of my favorites .. It can be served as a side dish and also as a evening tea item...

I love to have the wadas which are the lentil or dal deep fried dumplings with loads and loads of curds so in my plate you will find it with more amount of curds than the dumplings...

Here is the recipe DAHI VADA 


For the wadas:

2 cups udad dal soaked for about 7-8 hours
salt to taste

For the Dahi:

Take 2 cups of dahi or curds and churn a little till all lumps are broken don’t overdo it.
Add sandwich masala or chat masala which contains black salt, cumin, salt etc
you can add 1 tbsp ginger-chili paste (this is optional)
Coriander finely chopped for garnishing
Chilli powder for garnishing.


Grind the udad dal to a fine and thick paste, do not add too much water.
Add salt to it
Deep fry the wadas i.e. dip your finger in a bowl of water and pick up the batter and drop in the hot oil very carefully alternatively you can dip a big spoon in water and then pick up a little batter and drop it in the hot oil…
After they are fried just put them in a bowl of warm water and let them stay there till they are served.
Mix all the ingredients of the dahi or the yoghurt together.
While serving, remove the wada from the warm water and squeeze it lightly.
Take a bowl arrange the dahi wadas in it and then the spiced yoghurt is poured over it.
Garnish it with coriander, chilli powder and sandwich masala
