Dahi Vada Preparation

  2. Now take oil in a pan for deep frying the Fritters/vada.now tale some lentil paste and shape it like doughnut and put it in the hot oil.
  3. Make all the Fritters/vada in the same process and fry them in a medium flame till it turns golden brown.
  4. Take the fried Fritters/vada out of the oil and put them into a bowl filled with cold water.keep them soaked in water for 30 minutes.
  5. Now it’s time to assemble our Dahi vada.for that take the Fritters/vadas out of water and press them to strain the excess water.
  6. place them on a plate.pour the cold curd sauce generously on the Fritters/vadas that it can coat all the vadas well.
  7. Now pour the tamarind chutney as much you like.I always like to add extra tamarind chutney on my Dahi vada.because I love the tangyness of the chutney.
  8. now sprinkle some dry roasted cumin,coriander and red chili powder and some black salt for the extra chatpata feeling.add some sev/bhujia and serve it.
