Do you associate certain recipes and dishes with people. Like besan ladoo reminds me of a friend’s mum, kheer of my sister in law, sooji ka halwa my mum and so on. And the person I always associate Dahi Vada is with my mother in law
I have grown up eating North Indian version of this called the Dahi Bhalla, with the sweet and spicy chutney that is more like chaat. The south Indian version though so similar is yet so different.
Apart from the fact that I love eating the dahi bhalla that my MIL makes, she loves making it as well. It is her speciality and it if left to her will make way into every celebration menu, every festival feast. And diwali specially doesn’t pass by without her Dahi Bhalla’s
Last Diwali, I asked her to teach me how to make them and today I am sharing the recipe with you folks. Go on make your Diwali extra special with these Dadi Vada’s too
