Baked Black Urad Dal Dahi Vada

Baking makes me happy,whenever i feel down immediately i get my measurement cups and ingredients to make a simple cake just get rid of it. When i choosed this week's blogging marathon theme as deep fried snacks being healthy by baking or steaming, i know i'll definitely make some vadas with urad dal. Since ever i tried different dishes from black urad dal,i got hooked to this nutritious dal and i couldnt stop myself to use them quite often in my cooking nowadays.

Everyone at home dont even ask me why the vadas or temepered dals are black as they know very well that am using these black urad dal instead of deskinned urad dal quite often now. Thank god, even the final result looks dull and dark, the taste was simple awesome and all at home just enjoy anything cooked with this dal now.

Coming to this baked version of urad dal vada,last week it was too hot here and i went for making this guilt free dahi vadas for our snacks, i quickly prepared a usual batter and used my mini muffins mould to bake them, once they get well baked, i simply soaked them to spiced buttermilk. Omg, they tasted simply awesome, none at home noticed that these vadas are baked, we enjoyed this oil less dahi vadas thoroughly. An another guilt free dish to enjoy without any hesitation, for this month of Fried to Favourites Nupur choosed dahi vada or spring rolls as this month's challenge, obviously as am a part of this challenge am sending this guilt free dahi vadas to her.Do check out the other marathoners running here.


1cup Black urad dal (soaked)
1tsp Peppercorns (crushed)
1tsp Fennel seeds (crushed)
Few curry leaves
Salt for vadas
2cups Buttermilk
1tsp Mustard seeds+Urad dal + Cumin seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
1tbsp Sweet Tamarind chutney
2pinch Red Chilly powder
1tsp Oil
Salt for dahi

Grind the soaked urad dal as fine paste, add the peppercorns,fennel seeds and curry leaves with salt and make as a batter.

Preheat the oven to 350F, drop enough batter to the silicon muffin mould and bake for 20-25minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Meanwhile heat the oil, fry the mustard seeds,urad dal,cumin seeds and asafoetida powder, add this tempered spices and enough salt to the beaten yogurt.

Add immediately the baked vadas to the tempered yogurt and keep aside.

While serving,drizzle enough chutney and springle chilly powder on the top and enjoy.
