Dahi vada is a very famous snack or street food from North India. My Mom-in-law is an expert in making dahi vada, there is only one secret to make perfect dahi vada.if you whip batter with hands for 4 to 5 minutes then only you will get vadas melt in your mouth.

you can add chutneys and curd as per your taste.
