From time to time my followers send me their recipes with their pics of their tried and tested dishes and that makes me happy. I get to learn and appreciate that a dish can be made in a different way and presented in a different way too. Plus i get to learn different dishes and share them with all of you. If youd like to send me your favourite recipe with the pic please feel free to do so. Todays recipe comes from Priya Bedi who not only sent me the recipe with the picture but also told me a bit about herself in the email. I found that really soo touching. I also make these dahi wadas and havent had time to put it up in the blog. I make mine exactly the same was as Priyas….only i soak the lentils overnight and grind them with ginger and a few green chillies and leave the batter to ferment for a few hours. This ensures lovely soft wadas. No baking powder or soda to be added. The rest is the same as the recipe. So happy cooking!!
