Today I am going to share a mouthwatering chaat item "Dahi Vada", which also known as dahi bhalla, perugu vada, thayir vada or doi bora. A mouthwatering and yummilicious chaat item, is popular through out India. This recipe I inherited from my 'Ma', she is really a wonderful cook. In summer days, she oftenly made this delicious chat patta dish for our evening snacks. This is an all times favourite cold appetizer or starter.
1 Cup Urad Dal
1 tbsp Mung Dal
3 Cups Plain Yogurt/Curd/Dahi
Red Chilli Powder (as per taste)
Roasted Cumin Powder (as per taste)
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves (chopped)
10-12 Curry Leaves
2 Green Chillies
A Pinch of Asafoetida
Sweet Tamarind chutney, green chutney & sev for garnishing
Oil to deep fry

Soak urad dal along with mung dal for overnight. Drain it completely. 

Grind it in mixer along with curry leaves, green chillies and little water, till make a smooth paste. 

Mix addasafoetida, cumin powder, red chilli powder and salt with the pounded dal. Mix nicely.

Prepare butter milk with 1&1/2 Cups yogurt with salt, red chilli powder, cumin powder and set it aside. 

Heat oil on medium heat for deep frying. Wet your hand and take out 2 tbsps of batter and slight it very carefully in the hot oil. Deep fry vadas till golden brown. 

Drain oil and soak vadas in butter milk for 1-2 hours. Vadas absorbed maximum buttermilk.

Prepare yogurt mixture by adding little salt, cumin powder and red chilli powder. Mix nicely. Keep it in refrigerator till needed. Now place soaked vadas on a serving plate. Pour yogurt mixture on it. Sprinkle coriander leaves on the top. 

Add sev mixture and sprinkle cumin-red chilli powder, green chutney and sweet tamarind chutney on the top. Serve chilled. Enjoy this luscious & mouthwatering appetizer!
