Dahi Bhalle is a popular North Indian street food and delicious chaat or snack. Dahi is the Hindi meaning of Yogurt (curd). Dahi Bhalle is the most loved chaat that is made in my house because it is my mom’s favorite chaat and my mom’s Dahi Bhalle chaat recipe is famous in my family because she makes Bhalle super soft and tasty. Dahi Bhalle is also called Dahi Vada. Dahi Bhalle is basically a mixture of two lentils i.e urad dal and moong dal, yogurt, saunth chutney (tamarind chutney), green chutney and mix spices that are the main ingredients of Dahi Bhalle.Dahi-Bhalla-Recipe

In Dahi Bhalle, you can also add papdi, pomegranate and some dry fruits like raisin or cashew also added in it that gives sweet crunch in the chaat. Some street style Dahi Bhalle also comes with banana slices but personally I don’t like banana slices in Dahi Bhalle.
