Dahi Vada

Dahi vada a south indian special dish,which I love very much.Whenever I went for travelling at Andhra Pradesh,
I tasted it...but must say at there dahi vada is not like that type which one we do regularly at home!!! it was very simple to taste.
There was no masala/spices at all..vada was served only with curd and salt.After that I heard that There is two types of flavours.
One is Like South Indian style another one is Rajasthani style/Gujrati style.Rajasthani style/Gujrati style dahi vada is very spicy/masala flavoured with lal mirchi/red chili.
