Dahi Vada (Steamed Dumplings in Curd Gravy)


Dahi vada is a favorite with everyone. More often than not, vadas are deep fried, I have come up with a steamed version just like idlis.

Yes, these steamed dumplings taste equally good and are a healthier alternative to their fried counterparts!
A soul-pleasing dish for health freaks with the goodness of curd and mint leaves. Who says health food cannot be tasty?

Dahi vada is a popular delicacy all across India. It is one dish that serves as an accompaniment to meal times. Besides, dahi vada is savored as a snack. Here's presenting steamed dahi vada recipe. Does that disappoint? Of course, not!


Enjoy these vadas guilt free!

Ingredients

1/2 cup urad dal
1/2 cup roasted Bengal gram/ chickpea flour (chana dal)
2 pinches- baking soda/eno
Little salt


Procedure


  1. Soak both dals for 3-4 hours. Grind them with very little water.
  2. Add eno/baking soda before steaming in idli steamer. That's it. If you have the time for fermenting the batter, then leave the dal paste for 4-5 hours for fermentation. This way, you do not need to add any raising agent. Steam the vadas just like idlis.
  3. When the vadas are ready, take them out in a bowl, pour curd mixed with salt, sugar, jeera powder, and chaat masala.
  4. You can skip sugar if you are using chaat masala.
  5. I added little sugar as well as chaat masala.
  6. Finally, sprinkle some dried mint leaves or fresh coriander leaves. You may use fresh pudina leaves if you do not have dried ones. You may want to use tamarind paste. Boil tamarind in water for 10 minutes or until it thickens. Do this when you are steaming vadas. Sprinkle over the vadas once done.
  7. Let the vadas remain soaked in khatta meetha curd for 10-15 mins.
  8. That's it! Enjoy healthy dahi vadas with a twist!

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.
