Dahi Vada

Happy Holi and Dhuleti!! On this festive occasion, Dahi Vada’s are a perfect way to celebrate. Holi is all about the harmony in life, the balance. This balance also reflects in the food that we eat on this day. One of the traditional dishes that is made every year in my family are Dahi Vada’s. They have a perfect balance of sweet, sour, salty and spicy (we’re always looking for excuses to eat Dahi Vada’s).

You make the hung curd by taking regular curd and literally ‘hanging’ it in...

This should take about 3 whistles if you’re using a pressure cooker.       Add the sambhar powder and...

Varun loves everything crispy. I don’t know how many times we’ve tried to get the perfect crispy chicken. It comes out crispy; but it’s never THE crispy chicken.
