Chaat Style Curd Vadai Recipe - Dahi Vada Chaat

Dahi Vada recipe is my fav....Ever since I tasted the chat style dahi vada at Nilgiris I wanted to recreate it at home.I love anything curd based and when it comes to chaats, I cannot resist myself. Dahi puri is my fav and next to it my all time fav is the north indian style dahi vada .Chech south indian style curd vada recipe here.

I had few extra medu vadas the other day and I used them up for this - But if you prefer you can shape them like bondas too...anyway my vadas always look like bondas only :D

My Notes : 
  • Soaking the vadas in milk + curd mixture helps to avoid sourness.
  • Adding onions to the vada is purely your choice. You can skip it in the vadas and add raw onions while serving too.
  • The amount of green and sweet chutney can be adjusted to our preference. You can make the chaat chutneys ready the previous day and refrigerate to make it handy.
  • I used the remaining medu vadas so used it , you can make them as round bonda balls too.
