Amidst drum rolls and lots of pomp, we present a non-fried version of none other than one of the most popular chaats. . . Dahi vada. Be careful not to soak the wadas beyond 2-3 minutes, to prevent them from breaking. This snack will surely stir up your appetite when served with green chutney and sweet and sour chutney. This is a heavy snack so, i suggest you do not indulge in more than one serving.

Ingredients


For The Vadas
1 cup green moong dal (split green gram)
2 green chillies , roughly chopped
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
salt to taste
1/2 tsp fruit salt
1 1/4 tsp oil for greasing and cooking

For The Curds
2 cups low-fat curds , made from 99.7% fat-free
salt to taste
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)

Other Ingredients
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) powder
2 tsp chilli powder

Method
For the vadas

  1. Clean, wash and soak the moong dal for 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Drain, add the green chillies and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste, using a little water.
  3. Transfer the paste into a bowl, add the asafoetida and salt and mix well.
  4. Sprinkle the fruit salt and 1 tbsp of water over it. When the bubbles form, mix gently.
  5. Grease a non-stick tava (griddle) using ¼ tsp of oil.
  6. Pour ladlefuls of the batter on it to make 3 to 4 vadas at a time.
  7. Cover with a lid and cook on a slow flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Turn upside down, cover again and cook on a slow flame using ¼ tsp of oil for 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make more vadas.
  10. Soak them in enough water for 2 minutes. Thereafter, squeeze out the water and keep aside.

For the curds

  1. Combine the curds and salt in a bowl and mix well using a whisk.
  2. Heat the oil in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds.
  3. When the seeds crackle, add this tempering to the whisked curds and mix well.

How to proceed

  1. Place two vadas on a serving plate and spread the tempered curds over the vadas.
  2. Sprinkle ¼ tsp of cumin seeds powder and ½ tsp of chilli powder.
  3. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more servings.
  4. Serve immediately.
