Mosaru Ambode | Dahi Dal Vada | Perugu Masala Vada

Print Friendly and PDF
This post is sitting in my drafts ever since I made mixed dal Ambode, I also made a small batch of dahi vada with those ambode.Finally they are making their appearance in my 'Family Food-Season 2' series in which even I am posting the entries-snacks/chaats for the series.

I always like curd vadas as they are very soothing and I love the taste of vadas better when soaked in curd.Most of us makes dahi vada with regular medu vada,at our place we even make dahi vada with masala vada and mixed dal ambode.They definitely taste different when compared to the regular dahi vadas because of the difference in the texture of vadas.These are easy to make and can be served with meal or as a snack.

Mosaru Ambode | Dahi Dal Vada Recipe
(yields 12 vadas)

Ingredients:
12 Dal Ambode or Masala vada
3 cups thick fresh Curd
1/4 cup grated carrot(for garnish)
2 tbsp chopped coriander(for garnish)
2 green chillies
1/2" ginger
Salt to taste

for tadka:
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Urad dal
a sprig of Curry leaves
a pinch of Hing
1 tsp Oil
Method:
  • Grind green chillies with ginger and salt to a fine paste.
  • Heat oil in a small kadai and crackle mustard seeds and add urad dal and curry leaves and hing and fry well and remove it aside.
  • Beat the curds and add little water to make it bit thin which helps the vadas to soak properly.
  • Add the ground chili-ginger paste and tadka to the beaten curd mixture and mix well.
  • Drop the hot vadas into the curds mixture and let them soak for 2-3hrs.Otherwise soak the hot vadas in warm water for 2-3 mins and slighlty squeeze excess water and drop them in curd mixture and soak for 2-3hrs.Keep it refrigerated.
  • While serving arrange the vadas on a wide plate and pour extra curds over it.Garnish with grated carrot and coriander.If you have rest over tadka also garnish on the vadas.
Serve them cold.Finish off these dahi vadas on the same day itself otherwise they might turn sour next day.
Notes:
  • Always drop the hot vadas into dahi mixture or soak them in hot water and drop in dahi mixture which helps in soaking the vadas better in dahi.
Variations:
  • You can garnish these vadas with finely chopped onions or fine boondi for a nice variation.
  • You can also grind grated coconut along with green chili-ginger paste(which is to be added to dahi mixture) for a different taste.

hi Pratibha,
thanks for visiting me..
You have to deep fry to make the beans crispy, if you shallow fry, all the beans will not come out crispy.

saadu said...

Perugu Masala Vada is a yummy.Always love to have with perugu rather having vada alone.

Archana said...

Wow what ambode. Reminds me of my childhood.
Thanks for your support when my cookies went wrong. Since ladoos are what I would have to finish single handed I make a ice cream dessert.But its something that would have worked very well. Thanks a lot.
