Dahi vada or Curd vada

How to make Dahi vada /Curd vada
Here is another cool recipe to relish in the hot summer. As dahi vada is made using urad dal (Lentils ) dumplings and curd it's tasty and most favorite in hot summer. This delicious dish has its many versions and its very popular street food also.It can be served as starter or snacks.
I often make dahi vada for including more protein in my kids diet.I add handful of moong dal also while soaking urad dal for making dahi vada as I like slightly different taste of moong and urad dal combination.Moong dal is optional in dahi vada recipe.
Green chili and Coriander chutney , tamrind jagery chutney is used while serving dahi vada or it can be served just with whisked curd.It tastes tangy,spicy with chutneys.
Dahi/curd used for making dahi vada should be fresh as it tastes good with fresh curd.Its slightly sweetened while topping on dahi vada.
