Dahi Vada - a dish we eat all the time. As usual, I have a healthy twist to it. Don't miss it, as it's my mom's recipe.

In a bowl, take Semolina (Rava)
Take Curd in the equal quantity as Semolina
Add Curd to Semolina
Mix it well
Add Green Chilies as per taste
Add Ginger grated
Mix it well
Salt as per taste
Mix well
Add 1/4th cup water & leave it for 5 minutes
To make fluffy Dahin vada, add 1 tsp fruit salt
Add just a little bit of water into the mixture
You will see bubbles forming after adding water to fruit salt
Take Appam Patra 
Grease it with few drops of oil
We are not going to deep fry vada
This is a healthy twist to traditional Dahi vada recipe
We will shallow fry vada
Now pour dahi vada mixture into appam patra
Don't make it full, as it will rise due to fruit salt
Cook it on both the sides for 5 minutes
So our healthy vada are ready
Now take thin water mixed curd in a bowl add salt, mix it well
Mix curd and vada, let them soak for 5 minutes
Time to now plate our dahin wada
Serve dahi vada in a bowl

Pomegranate on top
Sprinkle Red Chili Powder
Sprinkle Roasted Cumin Seeds Powder
And Coriander leaves to garnish with.
