How to make Dahi Pakodi Chaat

  2. Transfer it into the bowl , add soda and little salt. Whisk well to form batter of thick pouring consistency. Add few tablespoons of water if required. Do not add to much water at a time or else batter will be too thin.

  4. Drain on to absorbent paper and add the fried dumpling to warm water mixture. Allow it to soak for 45 minutes.
