Dahi vada is one of my familys favourite snack in summer as it is cool and juicy.

The secret of soft and melt in the mouth Vadas lies in beating the Vada batter till light and airy.

The consistency of the batter will decide how soft the Vadas will turn out.

Use the beaten batter immediately to prepare the Vadas.

Always use fresh thick curd that is not sour.
