Dahi Bhalle (Vada)

Most of my cooking have been very simple, this is one among them. I have always thought that making Dahi Bhalle was difficult and loads of work, but found the other way around much easier and at the end it gives u a WOW exp. So lets take off quickly towards the making of this lovely dish. 


White Urad Dal             - 1 Cup 
Black Pepper                - 1 Tsp
Coriander leaves           - Chopped Finely
Curry leaves                  - Few leaves
Raw Rice                      - 1 Tbsp
Green Chille                  - 2-3 chopped Finely
Ginger                           - Chopped Finely 
Yogurt                           - 6-7 Cups
Oil                                 - To Deep Fry 
A pinch of Asafoetida
Salt to taste

Wash and soak dal in three cups of cold water add the raw rice to it  and leave it overnight.
Drain off excess water the following day. Grind dal to a smooth paste.
Add salt, red chilli powder, asafoetida , ginger, black pepper , green chille, into the batter.
Heat sufficient oil in a kadai. Drop batter in tablespoonfuls in it and fry until light golden.
Drain onto an absorbent paper. These are now called bhallas or vadas. Put bhallas in sufficient quantity of hot water. Leave for two minutes. Squeeze between your palms to drain out water.
Whisk yogurt well with salt to taste.
Place bhallas on a plate and cover with yogurt.
Add mint chutney and tamarind chutney. 

Sprinkle red chilli powder. Garnish with coriander leaves serve immediately.
