Dahi Vada Recipe for Diabetes

Dahi vada is a popular food item from North India. It consists of fried lentil dumplings that are dunked in yogurt. This is then garnished with coriander and spicy tamarind chutney.

But this is a special recipe as we will use vegan curd in it. The tamarind chutney is made using dates and not sugar. All these things make this recipe healthy for diabetics.

Ingredients:  ½ Cup Whole Moong/Green Beans (Soaked overnight) ½ Cup White Urad Dal (Soaked overnight) Ginger Chilli Paste Salt to taste

Ingredients:  For Vegan Curd Roasted Cumin Powder Red Chilli Powder  Black Salt Ginger Paste

Method:  Grind both the soaked beans separately to make a smooth paste. Mix them in a large bowl. Leave this paste to ferment for 8 hours. It will double in size.

Method:  Add ginger chili paste, salt and mix well. Put this batter in an idli pan and steam. They are ready when you put in a toothpick and it comes out clean. You can soak the Idlis in a chaash made from the vegan curd and then add more thick curd with masala.

Method:  Mix black salt, ginger paste, and roasted cumin powder in the vegan curd. Pour peanut or soy yogurt on top and serve with date tamarind chutney, garnished with fresh coriander, chili powder, cumin powder, and salt.
