Thayir Vadai / Dahi Vada / Yogurt Fritters


Thayir Vadai is a delicious south Indian snack. This Thayir vada is nothing but the left over vada (Medhu vada/Ulundu vada) soaked in unsour curd and garnished with Kara pundhi , grated carrots and coriander leaves. I love this Thayir vadai, I would say that this dish being grandpa’s all time favorite and also I have noticed him ordering this Thayir vada, whenever we visit restaurant. This is was my first try and the Thayir vada came out well. But how unlucky me, I can’t offer to my grandpa since he is no more. My daughter loves this lot than the plain vada. I am taking this to Fiesta Friday #57 hosted by Angie. Let us move on to the recipe…

  • Beat the curd well with salt.
  • Put in the vada’s and sprinkle Kara boondhi, roasted peanuts, coriander leaves and keep it aside for 15 mins.
  • Swap the vada in 15 mins and then continue marination for further 15 mins.
  • Serve it after half an hour, so that the vada would be tasty with the yogurt/curd flavor.
