A recipe for dahi vada (as kshiravata) is mentioned in Manasollasa, a 12th-century Sanskrit encyclopedia compiled by Someshwara III, who ruled from present-day Karnataka.[4]S( Source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dahi_vada)
Thayir Vadai are vadais soaked in thayir/curd/yogurt and spiced differently in different regions. The typical Tamil style is made by soaking the vadais in coconut and curd mixture and gently seasoned with mustard, curry leaves and red chillies.  Thayir vadai, everybody’s favorite at home!

Method

For Making Vadas
  •                               
  • Soak a cup of full Urad daal along with a spoon of rice for an hour. Then wash and drain it well.

  • Grind the green chillies, ginger, salt, asafetida with the curry leaves. You need to add a little water to grind it. Add the soaked urad dal and grind till it becomes fluffy.
  • Heat Oil on medium heat. Wet you palm and scoop up a small portion of batter in your hand,
  • Gently drop the batter into the hot oil. Allow vadai to get medium golden brown on one side before flipping over to the other side. 
  •  Allow other side to get medium golden brown and remove onto a paper towel to absorb excess oil. 
  •  Repeat process for all the batter to make vadai.



Thayir Vadai Preparation:

  • Once the vadais are made Soak them into a bowl of hot water  for about 10 seconds on each side. Take them out and squeeze out the excess water.
  • Grind coconut and chillies with a tablespoon of yogurt and add roasted cumin powder and mix well. Mix this mixture with the rest of the yogurt and add salt.
  • •Take a seasoning pan, add oil, mustard seeds, and curry leaves. When mustard seeds start spluttering
  • Switch off the stove. Pout this Tadka into curd Mixture. Mix it well.r
  • Divide this mixture in 2 parts. Cover and refrigerate one half. The other half, dilute with 1/2 cup of water.
  • Arrange three or four sets of Vadai in a flat bottom dish. Add diluted yogurt mixture in it. Mix well and Leave it for at least 4 hours
  • This will help it absorb all the water in the yogurt and leave a film of creamy yogurt on top. 
  • Before serving, pour the remaining yogurt mixture on top ensuring it flows on the sides of the vadais too.
  • Garnish with some chopped coriander leaves, , roasted cumin powder and chili powder .






Note:
  • You can add Grated carrots, Crunchy Boondi also makes an excellent garnish and makes the dish even more colorful.
  • You can  use Paniyaram pan to make the vadais . Its more healthy than normal vadais.

447: Thattai – Version 3


This is a traditional south Indian snack recipe, Thattai looks like tiny tortillas – deep fried to golden brown perfection.  It is little bit time consuming than any other snack. But the taste is worth all the effort and hard work!!

Ingredients:
Rice flour                                          2 cups
Urdh Dal Flour -                                3 Tbsp.
Byadagi Red chilies                            5 no.
Curry leaves chopped                         2 Tbsp.
Bengal gram                                        2 Tbsp.
Urdh Dal                                            1 Tbsp.
Butter                                                1 Tbsp.
Salt                                                    To taste
Asafetida powder                               1/4 tsp
Cooking Oil                                          for deep frying

Method

  • Soak the Bengal gram and uradh dhal in 1/2 cup of  warm water for an hour until soft.
  • Soak the Red chilies in a hot water for ½ hours.  Grind Red chilies and Asafetida in a mixer.
  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl; sprinkle water little by little and knead it into dough. Be careful in not to add too much of water.
  • Divide it into gooseberry sized balls. and keep it covered and let it to dry.
  • Take aluminum foil or zip loc covers, grease it with few drops of oil.  Flatten the ball into thin discs.

  • Grease your fingers and press the ball with your fingers to flatten it.
  • Then with a fork prick all over the Thattai because we don't want the Thattai to puff up like a puri when frying.
  • Slowly turn it over your palm. The greased plastic will enable it to slip on your hands easily.
  • Meanwhile heat oil for deep frying. Once the oil is smoking hot, reduce the flame to medium
  • Drop the Thattai gently in hot oil. The oil will bubble and slowly the thattai’s will come on the surface.
  • Flip and cook for more time until the bubbles completely stops, and  cook for 1 more minute in medium – low flame to ensure cooking completely. To ensure both sides are cooked .Drop them on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
  • Drain in paper towels. Do one by one and finish all the dough. Cool down.
  • Once cooled, store them in an air tight container.
  • Enjoy them with your hot tea, or with piping hot rasam rice.
