thayir vadai recipethayir vadai recipe | mosaru vade recipe | south indian curd vada with step by step photo and video recipe. dahi vada has always been a popular dessert snack across all over india. it has a different recipe in north india and is generally served as chaat or street food snack recipe. where as in south india it is still served as a snack but is made and served differently with more herbs and spices added to curd sauce.

i have already posted a north indian version of dahi vada recipe, but some how i had missed to share this since long time. well to be honest i personally like the south indian variation, but the north indian variation is more popular and hence i had shared it first. perhaps the addition of spicy and sour chutney’s make it more lip-smacking and on demand. where as the south indian variation has less spices and condiments added to it and has more focus on the taste of vada and curd combination. yet it has distinct taste of sweetness, savoury and also the sourness from the yogurt. the combination of these taste makes it very unique compared to all the other dahi vada variations.

furthermore, i would like to highlight some tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect thayir vadai recipe. firstly, you have to take extra care while preparing the vada. the batter has to be smooth and my first preference is the wet grinder. you can use mixer grinder but should be only the second preference. secondly, once the batter is prepared, it must not be allowed to be fermented. it must be used immediately and deep-fried. also there isn’t any hard and fast rule to have a specific shape to these vada’s. lastly, i have dipped these deep-fried vada’s in warm water which should remove excess oil and also soften it. as an alternative you can also use warm milk to add more extra flavour to it.

finally, i request you to check my other detailed snacks recipes collection with this post of thayir vadai recipe. it mainly includes recipes like south indian dahi vada, masala vada, chana dal vada, palak medu vada, medu vada in mixie, mosaru kodubale, maddur vada, bread upma, mixture, dahi ke sholay. further, to these, i would like to highlight my other detailed recipes collection like,
