Upvas Dahi Vada is the Maharashtrian yogurt coated dish made of potatoes and upvas bhajni, ideally made during Navratri fasts. This Dahi Vada is made using Water chestnut flour (shingada flour) which is very beneficial for skin, hair, thyroid gland and sore throat. The presence of Vitamin B6 in water chestnut helps in providing a sound sleep, thus, it’s an ideal ingredient to add to your fasting recipes. Crushed peanuts add the crunch to the vada where yogurt adds the flavor. This Upvas Dahi Vada is not only nutritious but also very delicious.
