We begin making Oats and Green Moong Dal Dahi Vada by soaking the black moong dal and urad dal in water for about 8 hours or overnight.
Once that is done grind both dals in the mixer to a smooth paste. You can add the roasted oats to the batter and leave it to rest till you make the dahi mixture.
Mix the curd/dahi and water in a bowl, add sugar and whisk it well to a smooth consistency. Leave it in the refrigerator.
Next to fry the vada, heat a Kuzhi Paniyaram Pan, take out the batter add salt and baking soda to it and mix well.
Add oil and drop in a tablespoon of the dahi vada batter in each of the holes and cover.

Once done take them out and drop it in the dahi mixture and refrigerate for about 20 minutes before serving.
