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.
