This is a video demonstration of an easy way to make dahi vada. She uses urad powder, adds cumin seed, baking powder, crushed chili pepper, salt, and garlic. She then shows how to make chutney. She uses tamarind paste and palm sugar. She goes back and mixes the dry ingredients to make a batter, and cooks spoonfuls of it in hot oil. In another pan, she melts the palm sugar on low heat. When it's melted, she adds tamarind paste and water, and lets it boil for five minutes, adds chili powder, and it's done. The dahi vada are placed in lukewarm water for five minutes, packing some others for the freezer. She puts yogurt in the blender, adds sugar and salt and blends. Squeeze water out of the dahi vada and place them in the yogurt. Sprinkle them with spice mix and homemade chutney. This is a quick and easy way to make a traditional Indian dish.
