Bread Dahi Wada | Quick Kids Snacks | Bread Dahi Vada


A quick to make and tongue tickling snack - Bread Dahi Vada is simply breathtaking in its simplicity and also satiates that craving for quick snacks - both for kids and adults. Bread (in most forms) is one of mine and kiddo's fav ingredient, and finds itself often to cutlets and tikkis as base. But this is the first time bread is the star of this dish, and how !! With the scorching summer bearing us down, this cooling snack is sure to be a hit with your family too..  This is also a great option to make for birthday parties and / or potlucks and can pretty much be made in advance (sans the yoghurt of course, which can be added 30 mins before serving)

Sending this to Mega Blogging Marathon under Birthday Party Ideas. Let's get to the recipe now.. and check out the marathoners here
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prep time - 15 mins
Cook time - 15 mins
Serves - 3
Difficulty level - Easy
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ingredients:
  • Bread slices - 6 nos (I used white bread)
  • Red Onion - 1 minced
  • Salt - to taste (I used 1/2 TBSP of black salt)
  • Curd / yoghurt - 3/4 cup (slightly sweet)
  • Chaat Masala - 1 tsp
  • Red Chilli powder - 1/2 TBSP
  • Jeera Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp
  • Oil - to shallow fry
Topping :
  • Sev / Farsan + coriander leaves
  • Pomogrante pearls
  • Red chilli powder + Chaat Masala
  • Green & Dates Chutney - 4 TBSP each

Method:

(A) To make the Vadas:
1) Soak the bread slices in water for 25 - 30 seconds and quickly squeeze out all the water.
2) Crumble these bread slices. To it add chopped onion, lemon juice, chaat masala, jeera powder, red chilli powder and bring it to a patties kind of consistency. 
3) Divide the patties into equal sized portions and flatten them up.
3) Heat an iron tava / skillet and shallow fry the patties in a little oil till they turn golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper. 

(B) To assemble the Dahi Vada:
1) Place one or two patties in a large flat dish. I prefer individual portions to a large dish else the vadas get soggy.
2) Beat the yoghurt with a pinch of salt and chaat masala. Spoon in 3 - 4 TBSP of spiced yoghurt. Top with chopped coriander, a bit of the chutneys, sev/ farsan and serve immediately.  

Note: 
1) You may also bake the patties if you so wish.
2) Chill the yoghurt for best results. If the curd is slightly sour, add 1/2 tsp of sugar while whisking it before topping the fried vadas.
