Dahi  kebab… sounds interesting, doesn’t it? That’s the very reason I ordered it in a food court and I was pleasantly surprised. It actually tasted delicious. And as though fate meant for me to make it, the recipe was showed on TV before I could even google it. It is so simple to make, and it is crowd pleaser. Most people I’ve served it to, haven’t heard of it and eat it out of intrigue. But there is no stopping after one, believe me. It even turned a “dahi hater” around.

It actually tastes a lot like paneer, but it is creamier and has that tang of dahi. It is pan fried, so up goes the healthiness factor.

You can add spice powders like cinnamon, cardamom, clove etc and zing it up. I preferred to keep it as simple as possible to let the dahi shine through.

You can either buy already hung curd or make it yourself. I made it myself. Hung curd is just regular yogurt with all the whey drained out. To make it at home, tie the yogurt into a muslin cloth and leave it hanging for 6-8 hours. I left it overnight in the fridge.
