Dahi Vada

Dahi Vada  is an Indian snack or chat prepared by soaking vada’s  in a thick curd (yogurt). During summer we feel to eat cold things and this can be prepared during summer days. The vada’s are prepared from urad dal and  the curd should be slightly spicy where we need to soak the vadas. I usually prepare dahi vada as one of the dish during lunch or dinner.

Dahi Vada






Ingredients for Dahi

  1. 1 Litre of thick curd (yogurt)
  2. 2 Green chillies
  3. 1 Inch ginger
  4. 2 Tbsp coriander leaves chopped
  5. 2 Tbsp grated coconut
  6. Salt as per taste


Take the curd and blend it and pour in a large bowl. Grind the coconut, green chillies, coriander and ginger into paste and add to the curd . Also add salt to it and mix well and keep aside.


Ingredients For Vada:

  1. 1 Cup Urad Dal
  2. 2 Green chillies
  3. 1 inch ginger
  4. 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  5. A small cup grated coconut
  6. Salt as per taste
  7. Oil for frying

Method to make Vada’s:

Soak the urad dal in water for 2 to 3 hours. Clean it and grind it in to paste. The paste should be thick. Add salt. Now grind the green chillies, ginger, coconut and coriander leaves in to paste and add to the batter.Now take oil in a pan  for frying. Once the oil is hot dip the small balls of batter in the oil and fry it on medium flame. Fry it till golden brown. Take vadas  out  and  drop them in the dahi (curd). Most of the times vadas are first dipped in water for a min squeezed and then dropped in curds. Any of the method can be adopted. I usually drop directly in  the curd. Repeat the same process for the rest. We can refrigerate it and can be consumed cold dahi vadas.
