Servings 4


  • 2 Cups Fox Nuts/Makhana
  • 2.5 Cups Plain Yoghurt/Dahi
  • ½ Cup Ice Cold Water
  • Cup Green Chutney
  • Cup Tamarind Chutney
  • Cup Fine Gram Flour Sev/Bhujia
  • 1 Tbsp Ghee/Clarified Butter
  • Salt According to the taste
  • 1 Tbsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Roasted Cumin Powder(optional)
  • 1 Tbsp Black Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Chat Masala
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro (chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp Powdered Sugar


  • Take a wok. Add ghee (Clarified butter).Heat it .
  • Lightly roast Fox Nuts till they feel crispy and look slightly brown here and there.
  • Remove it in a bowl and keep it on the counter top.
  • Take a big bowl ,add 2 cups of Yoghurt to it .Whisk it with a whisker. If its very thick then add little water ,do not make it runny .It should be thick and creamy.Keep ½ cup of yoghurt separate.We will use it later.
  • Mix 1 tbsp sugar and little salt in to the yoghurt and whisk it again.
  • Add all roasted Fox Nuts into the yoghurt and mix it well. Keep it in the fridge for 6-7 minutes. If you want little crunch /bite in the fox Nut use immediately.
  • Take a serving platter ,place all of the fox Nut soaked in Yoghurt in that nicely .
  • Now take ½ cup of yoghurt ,which we have kept separate and whisk it .Add rest ½ tbsp of sugar to it.
  • We need to pour this extra yoghurt on top of Fox Nuts ,because sometimes Fox Nuts soak All the Yoghurts .If you are making it immediately ,you may not need extra but I feel that it gives a wonderful creamy touch.(and look )
  • Garnish with different types of Chutney ,Sev,Fresh Cilantro leaves ,Red Chilli Powder,Cumin Powder,Rock Salt and Serve.
  • Enjoy your guilt free Dahi Vada.
