Dahi vada Recipe

Dahi vadas are popular all over India and are known by different names like dahi bhalla, tayir vadai or mosru vada. They are either seasoned or unseasoned as per the region where they are made. Sharing a dahi vada recipe the way I like it.


  • 125 gms urad dal
  • 250 gms rava
  • 12 green chillies
  • 2 inch piece ginger
  • Hing as required
  • Salt
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves chopped
  • Coriander leaves chopped
  • Pomegranate seeds


Soak the urad dal for 5 hours and grind to a smooth batter. Add salt. Add a glass of water to the rava, mix well and add to the urad batter. Crush the green chillies, ginger and hing and drop it into the batter. Add the chopped coriander leaves and curry leaves and mix well. Deep fry the vada and drop them into a bowl of water or thinned down butter milk. When the next lot of vadas gets ready remove it from the water or buttermilk and arrange it in a bowl. Drop the next lot into the water. Keep the soaked vada ready.

To be kept ready:

  • 2 glasses curds
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Jeera/cumin powder
  • Pepper powder
  • Chilly powder
  • Chat masala.
  • All the above according to taste.

Mix it well with the curds and pour it onto the vada. Garnish with coriander leaves and pomegranate seeds.
