Hola! to all you fun people out there. Weekend's near and I'm already in my lazy mood. And this sandwich is perfect for the mood. Today, I bring to you a fun and Summery sandwich - The Dahi Sandwich or the Yogurt Sandwich.

Say what you may, Summer is here, at least in Bangalore. And might I say I'm not loving it. It's gotten a tad too hot for my liking. I've been sending messages up in the sky for some rain and I hope I get a reply. Until then, all I can do is enjoy some Summery food in the shade with the fan on full speed.

So, Dahi Sandwich, when I first heard of it, I was so excited. I love Dahi (yogurt). It is the only thing that prevents me from becoming a vegan. Vegan yogurt is just not for me. If you love creamy sandwiches wrapped in crispy golden bread, then this one is the ONE for you.

Dahi Sandwich is super easy to make once you have the "hung curd". I will interchangeably use the words dahi, curd and yogurt, because they all are the same. And when I say yogurt, it is always the plain one and not flavored ones. Back to the "hung curd", hung curd is just curd from which the liquid has been drained out. There are several ways you can make hung curd. The traditional method is wrapping the curd in a muslin or thin cotton cloth and tying the cloth and then hanging it somewhere (preferably over the sink) and letting the liquid drain out. I choose the easy method, which is using a huge tea strainer. I add the curd to the strainer and keep it over a deep bowl in the fridge overnight. Come morning and all you curd is strained and you have the thick creamy solids. More about this in notes.

Once you have mastered making the hung curd, you can also try to make these delicious "Dahi Kebabs" that are perfect for dinner parties where you want to show your culinary skills. I only use homemade Dahi or Yogurt, you can learn how to make your own yogurt, here. It is super easy and the results are so much better than packaged yogurt.

After you have the hung curd, add in finely chopped vegetables, very little spice and then spread it on the bread and then toast the sandwich on a pan until crisp and golden. I kept the spices light, because I wanted the sandwich to be cooling. I added Chaat Masala, you can just add Garam Masala or any spice mix you like, or just stick to plain pepper. 

These Dahi Sandwiches are kid friendly and adult friendly (very). Also, between us, these are somewhat healthy, if you overlook the white bread and the butter. But I think on weekends, we can always cheat a little. So b-bye for now.

Happy Weekend folks, see you next week.

Recipe Type:  Snacks, Breakfast
Cuisine:            Indian
Prep Time:     10 minutes
Cook time:     15 minutes
Total time:     25 minutes
Yield:                5


10 Bread Slices
0.75 cup hung Curd
2 Tbsp Tomato, finely chopped
2 Tbsp Capsicum, finely chopped
1 Green Chilli, finely chopped
2 Tbsp Coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 tsp Chaat Masala
Salt to taste
Butter as required


1. Mix together the hung curd (see Notes), tomato, capsicum, coriander leaves, green chilli, chaat masala and salt until combined.
2. Spread the curd mixture on a slice of bread and place another bread on top to make a sandwich.
3. Slice off the edges of the sandwich.
4. Grease a pan with butter and place the sandwich on the pan.
5. Cook on low to medium heat until the sandwich turns golden brown on one side.
6. Flip the sandwich and cook until the second side browns.
7. Cut diagonally and serve.


1. Hung curd is made by straining thick dahi or curd or yogurt in a muslin cloth for a 4-5 hours. The same quantity of yogurt may give different people different quantities of hung curd as it depends on how much liquid the yogurt contains. Different brands may give different results too. Hence, for the sake of uniformity, this recipe uses the quantity of hung curd instead of quantity of curd or yogurt.

2. To make hung curd, take a muslin cloth and tie yogurt in it. Then suspend the cloth from a tap or rod for a few hours. Alternately, you can also use a fine strainer and leave the yogurt in it in the fridge overnight.
