Hi Friends here i will tell you the easy recipe of Dahi Bhalle ..It is a very popular snanck in North India..Specially Delhi,purvanchal,Rajasthan and Punjab..
From childhood what i am noticing in my family there is no occasion completed without dahi vada..in weddings , birthday parties, holi, diwali Dahi vada is necessary to be there as snack..Other menu can vary but dahi vada is must..
Dahi vada i prepare by using only urad dal but if you are allergic to have too much urad dal then you can mix half urad and half mung dal..
Making dahi bhalle takes time so you can make the sweet imli ki chutney and green chutney a day before. You can also prepare the vadas a day before. Soak them in water, squeeze out the water from the vadas and refrigerate. if you want to add papdis then the papdis can be made at home or brought from outside.
You can have dahi bhalla chilled as a snack or a starter with any North Indian meal.
- 1/2 cup soaked urad dal
- 2 teaspoon finely chopped,peeled ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon chopped cashews
- 1/2 teaspoon grated coconut
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon powdered cumin
- 1 tablespoon sweet tamarind sauce
- 1 handful pomegranate seeds
- Refined oil to fry
- 1 pinch powdered asafoetida
- 1 chopped green chilli
- 1/2 teaspoon Raisins
- 1 cup yoghurt (curd)
- 2 Spoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon black salt
- 1 tablespoon green chutney
- 1 leaves chopped coriander leaves
- 2 pinches salt and 2 pinch black salt
Grind urad dal to a smooth batter and keep aside. Add little water if desired during grinding. Mix cashew nuts, raisins, coconut and a pinch salt to the batter and mix well. If you are a spice lover you can add finely chopped green chilies or else you can use a pinch of red chilli powder to spice up bhallas.
Take a deep frying pan, heat oil over medium flame. Add spoonful of the batter into the hot oil. Fry until the bhallas become crisp and golden. Take a plate, put some paper towels or tissue papers to drain the excess oil. Then, drop these bhallas in a bowl of water for 10 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk the yogurt, milk and sugar in a bowl.Squeeze excess water from the vadas and transfer them to a bowl. Pour the yogurt mixture over the vadas. Sprinkle cumin powder, black salt, sweet tamarind chutney and green chutney on top. To make it more eye-grabbing garnish it with some freshly chopped coriander and green chilies and pomegranate seeds and sev. In heated summer enjoy chill Dahi Bhallas…
