  4. Did you cover your wadas while cooking in the ebelskiver pan? I made them today with moong dal (the yellow split one) but they have come out very dense, more like medhu wadas rather than soft spongy dahi wadas. I was really excited about this recipe but it was disappointing. Any suggestions?

    • Two points to remember, dal should be whipped to make it light & fluffy. The other is add a little eno…you will get better results!

  5. Your moong dal batter looks white…which moong dal have you used? Coudl i use urad dal to for the “real” dahi wada experience?
