Dalvada recipe | Gujarati dalvada recipe | how to make moongdal vada

Dalvada is a popular Gujarati street food made with green moong dal and regular spices.  Originally it is a deep-fried pakora so in this recipe I made fried and non-fried dalvada to make it healthier. These vadas are an ideal evening snack recipe that tastes great with fried chilies, slice onion, and a cup of tea or can also be served as a side dish to lunch or dinner. Do try this!

The key to making tasty dalvada at home are
  • Firstly, I used green moong dal. You can use yellow moong dal or whole green moong instead of it.
  • Grind soaked dal into a thick and coarse mixture; do not grind into a smooth paste.
  • Stir grinded batter in one direction so air particles incorporate into the batter and the batter becomes light and fluffy.
  • Fry dal vada on medium flame till it becomes crispy and golden brown from both sides.
  • Lastly, Dalvada tastes great when it is served hot with fried green chili and onion slices.
