Dahi Vada

Cheating picture No.2. This was made as part of the Punjabi Thali two months back, now getting featured on its own.

Another interesting fact about me: My entire dress collection fits comfortably into a single rack of the standard wardrobe!

I simply don’t have any interest in that section anymore. I recently got two sets of dresses stitched, but they have been sitting inside the cover well over an year.

Enjoy the recipe.


  • Vada                                      :             8
  • Yogurt                                  :             3 – 4 cups
  • Salt
  • Chili Powder                      :           1/2 tsp
  • Roasted Cumin Powder     :      1/2 tsp
  • Tamarind/Dates chutney :      2-3 tbsp


  1. Check out this post for making vadas. Once they are cooked and taken out of the oil, put them in a bowl filled with hot water.
  2. Let the vadas soak in the water for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Whisk the yogurt so that there are no lumps. Add salt as required and chili powder and cumin powder.
  4. Take the vadas from the bowl and squeeze out the excess water. Let them soak in the yogurt for at least half an hour.
  5. Refridgerate and serve garnished with coriander and chat masala.
