Thayir vada is a delicious curd based popular snack in South India. It is very similar to as dahi vada in North India. The deep fried ulundu vada is soaked in water. The water is drained and then soaked in yogurt seasoned with curry leaves and topped with crunchy boondis.

I have shared how to make some ulundu vada before with a video. You can even make the vadas in advance and refrigerate too. So, let’s check out how to make some tempting thayir vadas.
- 9 Vada
- 3 cups Dahi / curd
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp Mustard seeds
- 1 tbsp Sugar - 1 tbsp
- Salt to taste
- 1 sprig Curry leaves
- 2 tbsp Fresh coriander leaves (chopped)
- 2 tbsp Boondi for garnishing
Soak the vadas in hot water for 10 minutes.
Drain out the excess water and set it aside.
Take the curd, water, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl and whisk it well to make it smooth.
Now take a small frying pan and add cooking oil to it. When the oil is warm, add mustard seeds.
Once the mustard seeds crackle, add curry leaves. Add this tempering in the curd and mix well.
Drop the vadas into the curd, mix gently and refrigerate for an hour.
Garnish with coriander leaves and boondi just before serving.
