How to make Stuffed bread dahi vada with step by step images
- Peel boiled potatoes and mash it a little. I mashed it partially as I wanted it to be chunky.
- Heat oil in a pan add cumin seeds, after it crackles add mashed potatoes, boiled peas, salt, red chilli powder and garam masala powder. Mix well until combined. Add chopped cilantro and mix well. Put off the flame and allow the mixture to cool down.
- Take a bread slice chop off its sides (brown part).
- Using fingers wet the bread well with water. Do not add too much water as the bread will be very soggy and will be mushy making it impossible to cover the stuffing. When it looks wet take a small portion of potato mixture and place it in the center of the wet bread. Now bring all the sides of the bread together and make a ball. Its ok if its not perfect.
- Now take a fresh plate keep the bread ball in the center the folded part facing down. Add curd, tamarind chutney and green chutney. Now you can get creative and garnish it with your favorites. The below step is just to give a basic idea. Finally garnish it with chopped cilantro, ompodi/ sev, boondi and sprinkle some red chilli powder and chaat masala over it. Repeat the whole process till all the bread slice and stuffing is over. Serve it immediately! Too much soaking time can make the bread vada soggy!
