Baked – Yellow moong dal dahi/yogurt Vada
Traditionally dahi vadas are deep fried dumplings soaked in yogurt but for the healthier option choose baking , this can be served as a snack or chaat.
These are baked lentil dumplings dipped in yogurt and topped with spices. To make it low in calorie I have baked vadas instead of deep fry; Also used yellow moong dal instead of urad dal, which is packed with calcium and proteins. (Though I bake many dishes but to bake vadas the confidence came only after checking post from Vidya @ Traditionally Modern Food).
This appetizer can be served with dates -tamarind chutney or mint chutney.
