Time 20 min
Urad daal 1 cup
Curd 2 cups
Chopped green chilies 1/2 tsp
Custard powder 1 tsp
Milk 1 cup
Chaat masala 1/4 tsp (optional)
Red chili powder 1/4 tsp (optional)
Powdered sugar 3-4 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep fry
Soak urad daal overnight, add salt and make a smooth paste in blender .
Heat oil in a pan and drop a spoonfuls of batter and fry till golden brown. Then take the hot vadas and put in cold water for 2-3 minutes. Now take them out of water and squeeze the water and keep aside.
Dissolve custard powder in 1-2 tbsp milk. Heat remaining milk, then add dissolved custard powder in the milk and stir continuously, till custard thickens. Switch off the flame, allow it to cool then refrigerate it. To the chill custard add curd, add powdered sugar, mix well with hand blender.
Now in a deep dish arrange wada and pour custard dahi, if you wish sprinkle red chili powder and chaat masala. Refrigerate the dahi wada and serve chill.
I personally do not like chaat masala and red chili powder with custard dahi wada, so i do not add. It goes very well with only dahi wada.
