Quick Dahi Vada

This is a very common recipe of making Dahi vadas that I have learnt during my childhood. Here the fried Dahi Vada is substituted with Butter biscuits. I have used wheat biscuits instead of Maida to make this recipe more healthier. Also use of Jeera flavoured biscuits make Dahi Vada more tastier. 

Ingredients :

For Sweetened Curds :
1 large cup thick Curd
2-3 tspns Sugar
A pinch of Salt

For Vada :
8-9 Jeera Butter Biscuits 
1 large bowl Water

Other Spices :
1/2 tspn Roasted Cumin Powder
1/4 tspn black pepper powder
1/2 tspn Chaat Masala
A pinch of red chilly powder

To Garnish :
Corriander leaves

Method :

To make Sweetened Curds :
Whisk curds in a bowl. Add Sugar and salt to it. Again whisk it and keep it in refrigeratar.

To make Vadas:
Heat water in a large bowl. Take the Jeera butter biscuits in a strainer. Once the water reaches boiling point, place the strainer containing Jeera Butter Biscuits into the boiling water. Let it remain in the water for a minute or two. Then remove from the boiling water and set it aside. Squeeze out the excess water from the butter biscuits.

To make Dahi Vada :
Arrange the squeezed Jeera Butter Biscuits in a serving plate or bowl. Sprinkle roasted Cumin Powder, Black Pepper Powder and Chaat Masala over it. Then pour sweetened curds over the Jeera Butter biscuits. Sprinkle red chilly powder and corriander leaves over it. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

Notes :

Since this is a quick version, I have not used Green chutney and sweet tamarind jaggery chutney. You may add these chutneys also to enhance the taste.

Serving : 2 persons
Cooking time : 5 minutes
Serving time: 5-10 minutes
