Dahi Vada is a popular Indian snack made with lentil fritters (vadas) soaked in a spiced yogurt sauce. The vadas are made by grinding soaked urad dal (split black lentils) into a batter and deep-frying small, round fritters until golden and crispy. Once fried, the vadas are soaked in water to remove excess oil and then squeezed gently to remove the water. They are then immersed in a tangy yogurt mixture, flavored with spices like cumin, chaat masala, and tamarind chutney. Dahi Vada is typically garnished with fresh coriander leaves, sev (crunchy chickpea noodles), and a sprinkle of red chili powder. It is a refreshing and indulgent snack, perfect for hot summer days or as a starter for special occasions.
