This lovely dahi wada recipe which fits to be for “royalty” has been sent to me by Raj Kartik and so i have named it “rajwadi” dahi vada. This dahi wada recipe is nice for special ocasions as it has raisins and cashewnuts used in it. So..without further ado i am sharing the pics and recipe sent to me by Raj…Thank you soo much!!!
1 cup of white urad daal (white lentils available in most desi supermarkets) I use THIS
1/2″ piece of ginger (for jains you can omit this)
salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon crushed black peppercorns
2 tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoons chopped cashew nuts
1 tablespoon of freshly grated coconut
white yoghurt as needed
a good sprinkle of chaat masala
a good sprinkle of red chilli powder
a pinch of sugar or to taste
chopped coriander leaves for decorating
water as needed
oil for deep frying
Soak the urad daal over night in ample water ( the daal tends to increase in size so make sure you soak it in at least 3 cups of water). Next day wash the daal till the water runs clear. Put it in a blender  ( i recommend my bullet) and add the ginger and blend it into a smooth semi thick paste using water little by little. Leave the paste for an hour and then add the salt, cumin seeds, peppercorns, raisins and cashewnuts.Heat the oil for deep frying and with a spoon take spoonfuls of this batter and deep fry it on medium oil till golden brown. Once all the balls are fried put them to soak in hot water for about five minutes. Remove from the hot water and gently squeeze between your palms to remove all the water. Place them in a plate. Beat the white yogurt with salt, sugar and a little water till smooth. Put over the wadas and then sprinkle chaat masala, red chilli powder and chopped coriander leaves. Put in the fridge to chill and then eat!! You can also serve this with tamarind and green chutney,

This batter can also be made in advance and kept in the fridge. The vadas can also be deep fried and then frozen. When you need to make your dahi wadas, just remove from the freezer and thaw. Put into hot water and proceed as the recipe.
