【酸奶泡豆饼】Dahi Vada/Dahi Balla (Lentil Dumplings in Yogurt Sauce)


I made Medu Vada (Deep Fried Lentil ball) two days ago, I did made extra so that I could make this Simple Chaat called Dahi Vada the next day as snacks for N.

I like the idea to make one dish and turn into another different dish, it just reminds me that life don't have to be so complicated sometimes......

6-7个 炸豆饼 
2 杯 热水 
1/2 杯 酸奶 
3 大勺 牛奶
1/4 小勺 盐
一点 辣椒粉
一点 烤香的孜然粉
1 大勺 罗望子沾酱
1 小勺 芫荽沾酱 

6-7 Medu Vada/Vadai 
2 cups hot water
1/2 cup Plain Yogurt
3 tbsp Milk
1/4 tsp of salt
a pinch of Chili powder
a pinch of roasted cumin powder
1 tbsp Tamarind Chutney
1 tsp Green Chutney

1. 首先把豆饼泡在一盆热水中,大约3-5分钟,基本上豆饼吸饱水分就可以了。

2. 泡豆饼的时候准备酸奶,把1/2杯的酸奶加3大匙的牛奶搅拌成液体奶油的状态,加1/4茶匙盐。
3. 把饼一个一个的捞出来,用手掌把水压出来,然后把没有了水份的豆饼泡到酸奶里20分钟,让豆饼充分吸收酸奶。

4. 20分钟后,把豆饼拿出来,摆到盘子里。 炒香孜然粉,然后洒在豆饼上,也撒上一点辣椒粉。各一点点就好了。

5. 然后均匀的洒上罗望子沾酱和芫荽沾酱即可。
1. Soaked vadas in hot water for about 3-5 minutes till it soaked up enough water and become soft in texture.

2. Whisk together yogurt,milk and salt till it is creamy.

3. Now take out the vada one by one, squeeze out as much water as possible using both the hand's palm, be careful not to break the vada.

4. Place the squeezed vada into yogurt for 20 minutes, this is for the vada to absorb the yogurt.

5. Place the vada on a serving plate, sprinkle roasted cummin powder, chilli powder over vada.

6. Add green chutney and imli chutney (Tamarind Chutney) before serving.

  1. The taste would have been much better if you pre-roast the cumin seeds and grind them into powder to add into dahi vada

  2. I have not tried this dish (or even heard it) before but it sure looks very interesting. How does it taste like?

    1. It is a north Indian Chaat (Snacks) it is supposed to be soft and melt in the mouth, tasted sweet, sourish and savory, kinda overpowering in my opinion but that is how the indian liked it!


  3. Nice post, I bookmark your blog because I found very tasty recipe on your blog, Thanks for sharing more information.I really like it.
