Perugu Garalu (Dahi Vada)


Udad dal 500 gms
Curd (thick) 1 liter
Green chillies 2
Salt as per taste
Oil for deep frying


Udad dal 1/2 tsp
Rai 1/4 tsp
Red chilly dry 2
Curry leaves few
Oil 2 tbsp


Soak udad dal for 3-4 hours.

Blend yogurt for few minutes.Add salt and mix well.

Heat oil add all the seasonings and when they splutter add it to the yogurt.Keep aside.

Grind udad dal into thick paste without adding water.

Wet a plastic sheet with little water and take a lemon sized balls and flatten it on the sheet and make a hole in the center so that vada cooks evenly.

Slowly drop the vada in the oil and cook till golden colour on both sides.

Take it out and immediately dip it in a bowl of water and transfer it to the yogurt mixture. Let the vada soak in yogurt for atleast half hour.

PS:-By dipping the vadas in the water will keep vada soft in the yogurt or else vada will become thick after dipping in the yogurt.
