        Hi Ruchi,

        I see u used moong dal here. Do they turn out as fluffy and nice like with urad dal? Thanks!

    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!

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

      Dahi ki pakori is made with yellow moong dal, Dahi wada is made with Urad dal.
