  1. Soak the urad dal for at least 4 hours or overnight. Drain the water and grind it to a smooth paste using a little water as needed.
  2. Add salt, cumin seeds, and baking soda to the batter and mix well.
  3. Heat oil in a pan for deep-frying. Take small portions of the batter and shape them into small vadas by dropping spoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil. Fry them until they are golden brown and crispy.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the yogurt, cumin powder, red chili powder, and salt.
  5. Soak the vadas in the yogurt mixture for at least 30 minutes.
  6. To serve, take a vada, and place it on a plate.
  7. Top it with the yogurt mixture, tamarind chutney, mint chutney, coriander chutney, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, cumin powder, and chaat masala.
  8. Repeat the layering until all the vadas are used up.
  9. Serve the Dahi Bhalla immediately.

Note: You can also use store-bought vadas. Before serving, soak them in the yogurt mixture for a few minutes.
