Dahi Vada / Thayir Vada/Curd Vada - South Indian Style

Today I prepared Medhu Vadas for Breakfast and had leftover batter. So thought of preparing Dahi Vada with them. I have made this in South Indian Style. Here, the fried Vadas are soaked in the flavoured yoghurt sauce. It is a perfect summer snack.

  1. For the Medhu Vada recipe, Click here. Grind the green chillies,Ginger, Salt, Cumin Seeds and Asafoetida with 2 tbsp of Curd. Again use the remaining Curd and grind. If required you can add little water. 
  2. Take the Medhu Vadas and keep it in a wide bowl. Soak the Vadas with the curd from step 1 for atleast 30 mins. 
  3. How to Serve: At the time of serving, Garnish with Carrot, Coriander Leaves and Boondi.
  • Don't use sour curd. Use thick curd.
  • While serving, you can temper with Mustard seeds and curry leaves.
