Dahi Bade

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.

"Dahi Bade" are soft lentil dumplings, fried and soaked in thick yogurt sauce and is a popular snack, served while breaking fasts in Ramadan. I look forward to eating this snack , as I love it's melt-in-the-mouth texture and the way it soothes your hunger. There are many different ways of making them and this is how I like it and so does my family. The picture in this recipe shows a large quantity I had made for a lot of guests but this recipe is good enough for a family of four.


Urad daal-2 cups(washed, soaked and ground to a fine paste for 4 hours)
salt-to taste
water-2-3 cups cup
 yougurt-4 cups
oil- good enough for frying

for tempering...

oil-2-3 tsps
curry leaves-5-6
mustard seeds-1 tsp
cumin seeds-1/2 tsp
dry red chillies-4-5

Method:  Put salt into the batter,  mix well and set aside. In a serving bowl, mix yogurt, salt, and water to get a thick consistency. Heat oil in a pan and drop a tbs full of the lentil paste and fry until golden brown in color. Remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon onto a plate and let it cool down a bit. Put the cooled dumplings into the yogurt sauce. In a saute pan, add some of the hot oil, and put the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and let them sizzle and pop. Add the red chillies, and fry for a couple seconds, followed by the curry leaves. Turn off the stove and pour the tempering on top of the soaking lentil dumplings happily soaking in the yogurt sauce. Enjoy!
