Kuttu ke atay ka Dahi Bhalla/ 
Buckwheat flour dumpling in curd/
Navaratri Recipe
Hi Friends,
Today i am here with very scrumptious Dahi Bhalla Recipe with Kuttu Atta. This recipe is for People on fast or any Spicy Lover can try these bhallas. They are so spicy and tasty. If kuttu atta is not available at your place then try some other flour which can merge well in potatoes. I made them for hubby and when i was frying bhalla my son tried to grab one and when i told him that there is chilly in this he put it back and asked me to promise to make them again for him. So my all spice lover friends try this lip smacking dish and grab the attention.

  1. Be quick while adding flour in potato mix as it starts leave water, so keep you kadai ready with hot oil and after adding flour to potato shape them as vada and fry them as soon as possible.
  2. If you feel vada is cracking or spreading in oil then wrap vada in flour and fry.
  3. If you feel mix become watery then add more flour and be quick to process.
  4. After frying vada, cool them before adding to curd.
  5. You acn add your favorite spices in curd and vada also.
  6. Skip chilly (both red and green) if making for kids.
  7. Be careful while frying vadas, it will sizzle a lot.
  8. I made curd first and put it in fridge as my husband like it chilled, you can bhalla first and then make curd.
