This is how my family and I always make dahi baray. Always a hit, whenever I serve them. Friends request it again and again.

The receipe is good just be sure that the viscosity of the dahi should be a little runny otherwise the baras will suck /absorb the dahi and it will be very thick,put baras in the dahi just a short while before serving.

I like the recipe but have a question.Why should we NOT turn the barey over to fry on the other side? and why do we first shallow fry and then deep fry ? any special benefit of two steps frying?
