Thayir vadai recipe | South Indian Curd Vadai | Curd Vadai | Dahi Balla | South Indian Dahi Vada

Thayir Vadai Recipe is my fav snack for evening time. I love anything with curd/ thayir. I used to be a big time fan of North Indian Dahi balla but after tasting south Indian thayir vadai I changed my mind. Its so mild, flavorful and taste amazing after a long soak in curd/ thayir. Mom used to make vadai pretty much every weekend since dad loves it a lot. My dad loves all kinds of snacks that’s made with besan flour/ Kadala mavu. I have never tasted thayir vadai at home. Amma usually make Sambar vadai, Rasam vadai or usually Vadai/ Vada( Urad Dal) with spicy yummy coconut chutney or Tiffin sambar. May be my mom would have made thayir vadai but I haven’t tasted it. I usually never try any snacks when I was a kid. Mom used to be such expert in making all kinds of snacks. I was not lucky enough to eat it. It’s only after marriage I learned to make all kinds of snacks from mom, since hubby loves all kinds of snacks.

Even though I make all kinds of snacks, I never used to eat it. I have this weight conscious feeling from college that kadala mavuu/ Besan flour is not good for health. I  suddenly had craving to eat thayir vadai/ Dahi vada and I called amma and asked her if she knew. She was so angry when I asked her that question. She said she has made it so many times and I never even tried it once. hmmm I felt bad and then consoled her saying I will try it one day and will learn the recipe from her. I noted it down and made the Thayir vadai that evening itself. Oh my god I cant believe I had missed an awesome food all these day and since then I make it whenever I feel like. Thank to amma. Now off to making of thayir vadai recipe.
