Before making dahi vada, I’ve prepared chutneys a day before and kept in a refrigerator in airtight container. Basically, tamarind chutney is poured in the North Indian style dahi vadas but I’ve prepared it with red chutney which is I made with tomato sauce and some spices. Several times, tamarind is not available in the local market. Then, what to do? So I’ve used red chutney for dahi vadas.
To make the vadas, soak the urad dal for about 5 to 6 hours or overnight. After this washed it and grind in a mixer grinder along with some water. The consistency of the batter should be thick. Use homemade fresh yoghurt and chutneys. Green chutney is optional. You can also make Dahi Vada only with yoghurt and red chutney. I have mentioned the recipes of chutneys and urad dal vadas in the direction. I hope you like it.
