Moong Dal Dahi vade


Moong Dal Dahi vade is an oil free Dahi vada recipe for Dahi vada lovers. Dahi vada is my favorite dish, so tried an healthy version of it, so that I can enjoy it often.
Generally, Dahi vada is made with white lentil, which is heavy on stomach. And deep frying makes it more unhealthy.
So innovated this Moong Dal Dahi vada in an Appe maker and it came out so good. I hope you will love it.
It is very easy recipe, you just need to soak the yellow lentil for 3 hours.
This is a chutney free recipe, but you can add chutney of your choice if you wish.
So, let us start.
