Directions

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the batter (with water)and keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Mix the spices& herbs in the yoghurt; It should be of thin consistency.
  3. Heat oil in a frypan; Lightly drop the batter with a teaspoon or tablespoon depending upon your taste for the size.
  4. Deep fry to a medium golden brown and drop these into the yoghurt mixture, directly from the oil; Please be careful of the spatters while dropping the badas. Alternatively, you could drop the hot badas in salted water. Let them soak for 4-5 mins and press between the palms to take out excess water (please don't press too hard). And then transfer to the yoghurt mixture.
