Dahi vada /Dahi bada is the quintessential party snack.People of all age groups love it.Also, it saves you from making an extra curry for a party.
Curd also helps with digestion when we eat all that heavy creamy curries.Thus a win-win for both the guests and the hosts.Dahi vada chaat is a mix of tangy mint and sweet tamarind/date chutney.Later,garnished with pomegranate seeds.
Is Dahi Bhalla and Dahi Vada same?
Yes,No one gets bored of this yummy dahi bhalle!
It is full of protein as it is only soaked and slightly fermented lentils.I end up eating so many of them while making them.You can serve a bit as a snack to kids when you make it.Have it later with yogurt and chutneys later.Two snacks in one.
Both super tasty and yum!
Best part is any shape of the vada will do.It need not be a perfect donut.
You can make it a day before and keep it ready for the party.Garnish it with mint and tamarind chutney before you serve.
Variation: Some people make a stuffing of cashews and almonds and stuff it while making the vada.
However,that is strictly optional.Plain vada looks great as it is and you can have it hot even without a dip!
