Dahi Vada Recipe with Moong Dal | Soft Spongy Moong Dal Dahi Vada Recipe | How to Make Dahi Wada

Moong dal dahi vada recipe video in Hindi. Soft and spongy yellow moong dal dahi vada recipe in very few steps.

Dahi vada is a simple and delicious snack loved by many. It is also a festival snack often made on Holi and diwali. Soft and spongy dahi vada are lentil dumpling dipped in creamy yogurt topped with chutney. Tastes just yum! Dahi vadas are super easy to do and if you have party at home, you can make them in advance. Just assemble them on the party day and serve. Garnish them with zeera power, red chilli powder, fine chopped coriander leaves and fresh pomegranate seeds.

In this recipe I used moong dal in place of traditional urad dal. To get soft dahi vadas it is important to soak dal at least for 4-6 hours. Grind batter with very little water or no water if possible. Also use fresh, thick yogurt for bettter taste. Dahi vada can also be made with just yogurt or you can also add sweet chutney on it. Since dahi vada only tastes good when they are soft and spongy hence batter should be whipped nicely. I have also added very little soda to  make then extra soft. Always soak moong dal dahi vada in warm water at least for 10 minutes before serving. This will make vadas fluffy from inside. I have added sugar in curd and whipped it to make it creamy.
