Take Urad and Moong Dal, and blend them in a mixer. Make sure the lentils have blended well so that no solid dal remains in the mixture. Take a large bowl and transfer the dal batter in it. Now mix hing, red chilli powder, black salt, cumin powder, salt the batter and mix well.
In a pan, take some refined oil and heat it. Now, make small balls from dal batter and put them in the hot oil. Make sure the dal balls are small enough to put in the shot glasses. Deep fry them until they are golden brown.
Take them out, and soak the vadas in a bowl full of warm water till they are soft and tender. Leave them aside.
Now take the soaked tamarind and strain the liquid from its pulp. In a pan, take two tablespoons of oil and add cumin seeds. Wait till they start to crackle.
To this, add hing, ginger powder and red chilli powder. Mix well. Then add the strained tamarind liquid and stir. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes and bring it to boil. Add jaggery and wait for it melt.
For coriander chutney, blend coriander, dry mango powder, chopped garlic, chopped green chilis, and salt till its smooth like a liquid.
In a medium bowl, take yoghurt and whisk it so that there are no lumps. Now add cumin powder, red chilli powder, sugar, and black salt to it. Mix it well.
Take shot glasses, and put the soaked vadas in it. Now fill the glass with dahi mixture and top it off with tamarind and coriander chutney. Garnish them with chopped ginger, cumin powder and pomegranate seeds. And voila! your Dahi Vada shots are ready to serve!
