Dahi Vada (Uddina Vade)

Uddina Vade is something of which I have very fond memories of. Bajjambode (Urad dal vadas in gravy - will post this recipe some other day)  was something that my mom used to make almost every time when we used to have someone over at my home.

When I saw the recipie on Jayanthi's blog, wanted to do it today :)

You need
Urad dal - without the skin 1 cup, soaked in water for 2 hrs
Green chillies - 5 (adjust as per taste)
Ginger - grated 1 tsp
Rice flour - 1/2 tbsp
Curds - 1/2 ltr

For Garnish
Chat masala
Chopped coriander leaves
Bhondi / Sev

1. Grind urad dal, green chillies and ginger into smooth paste. Add very little water while grinding (just sprinkle little water).
2. Add hing, salt and rice flour to the mixture and mix well.
3. Boil water in a pan. Simmer it in to low so that the water is not bubbling but hot.
4. Heat oil in a Pan. When the oil is hot, take a little dough on your palm, make hole in the center and carefully transfer in to the oil. Or you can even make balls and drop it in water. Repeat this process and drop 4 or 5 vadas in oil and fry them. Flip occasionally for even browning.
5. Remove the vada and drop them into the hot water. Let it si for 2 mins
6. Flip and allow it to sit for another couple of mins.
7. Mix hing, salt and chopped green chillis to the curd.
8. Squueze the vadas lightly with the help of a laddle to remove excess water and drop them into the readied curd mixture.
9. Allow it to sit for 30 mins
10. To serve, take each vada into a bowl, top it with the curd mixture. Garnish with coriander leaves and chat masala.

One time when I made extra pakode for Kadhi Pakoda - I put curd, tamarind chutney, and everything else and converted them to Dahi Vada. They're so simple and easy to make, with anything! :D
