Dahi Sandwich Recipe | Yogurt Sandwich Recipe [Video]

Yum

Dahi Sandwich or Yogurt Sandwich. An easy and healthy vegetarian sandwich that is made by stuffing bread with a delicious mix of hung curd (yogurt), finely chopped vegetables, and spices and toasting it off in a frying pan until golden and crispy. Perfect for breakfast or snacks.

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 yogurt sandwich hung curd sandwich

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.

Dahi Sandwich Recipe


dahi sandwich yogurt sandwich hung curd sandwichInstant Mix Vegetable Uttappa is a quick savory South Indian pancake that is made from semolina and topped with finely chopped vegetables. It is popularly served as breakfast along with some fresh coconut chutney.

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

Ingredients:


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

Method:


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.

Notes:

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.

Instant Mix Vegetable Uttappa Recipe | Rava Uttapam Recipe [Video]

instant mix vegetable uttappa dosa made from rava

I'm a complete breakfast lover! These days breakfast is served with a side of "Man with a Plan" playing on Amazon Prime. The show on the side changes, but the love for breakfast never does.

Right from childhood, I've always woken up hungry. It doesn't matter what time I wake up, it could even be a short afternoon nap, but I am hungry for the first 10 minutes after I wake up. It seems like I spend a lot of energy in sleeping and dreaming. But this also gives me the opportunity to actually enjoy my breakfast. I've heard of people forgetting to eat their breakfast (Gee!) and people not being hungry even an hour after waking up (Raj!), but not me, I was born to enjoy the first meal of the day.

Since this has always been my favorite meal, I keep searching for recipes and ideas to keep it interesting. And for me breakfast has to be instant, else it has to be made the previous night. I cannot wait for hours to prepare something. So instant recipes are always a hit with me, like this Instant Mix Veg Uttappa.

instant mix vegetable uttappa dosa made from rava


To tell you the truth, Uttappa is my favorite way to eat a dosa, even over a Masala Dosa. It's something about those charred onions on top that just makes me want it more than the others. I just went a little ahead with this Instant Uttappa, I topped it not just with onions but with a mixture of vegetables. You can keep it traditional and just use onions, or just use tomato. I love Tomato Uttappa too, with a little bit of spicy chutney pudi sprinkled on top of it.

This Instant Mix Veg Uttappa requires just a few ingredients. Rava or Semolina or Sooji forms the base along with some sour plain curd (yogurt). A pinch of baking soda or cooking soda is added to give it that slight fluffiness. You can also use fruit salt like Eno, but add just a pinch. These ingredients along with salt and water just form the dosa, the actual base of the Uttappa. As I mentioned earlier, you can now top this with vegetables of your choice - traditional choices are onions or tomatoes, I used a variety - onions, tomatoes, cabbage, capsicum and carrot along with some green chillies, curry leaves and coriander. 

Instant Mix Veg Uttappa can be served for breakfast or as an early evening snack. You can also serve it for dinner (I'm a big "breakfast-for-dinner" person). 

Serve the Uttappa with a fresh coconut chutney.

Masala Pav, Indian street food

So... I had this whole post ready to be published last night, and I forgot! Oops.

Yeah, I can be such a dumbo sometimes. I have no clue how I forgot something this basic. Anyhow, now I'm here and so excited to share one of my favorite recipes.

Masala Pav is another one of those popular street foods. Frankly, I'm yet to come around to a street food that isn't popular. I love that it has so much flavor and it is usually so colorful. And it is our local fast food. Over the years, I have posted so many of my favorites like Pani Puri, Masala Puri, Chana Chaat, Tomato Puri, Pav BhajiTava Pulao and just as of last week, I posted the recipe for Mumbai Masala Toast. I've also posted my version of a few dishes like this Sweet Potato Chaat and the Dahi Bread Chaat.

What is your favorite street food? And what do you like about it?

Masala Pav, Indian street food


So, lets get back to today's recipe - Masala Pav. If you are from Mumbai, you may be wondering why my Masala Pav looks like this. I'll clarify. This is the version you get in Bangalore, and it is the only one I've ever eaten and loved. So don't leave just yet, try this one and you may just love it as much as I do.

Masala Pav, first requires you to make a masala that is made from onions, tomatoes, capsicum (bell pepper) and potatoes. You can skip the potatoes if you want, but nothing could ever make me skip them. Allow all the veggies to cook down and mash them coarsely. The masala is spiced with a Pav Bhaji Masala Powder. Once the masala is cooked, shredded or diced pav is added and mixed well. Top with finely chopped onions, coriander leaves and Sev before serving.

If you don't have Pav bread easily available, you can make this with any loaf bread you have or with buns. I have added butter towards the end, you can also use only butter instead of oil. To keep this recipe vegan, just skip adding the butter.

Masala Pav makes for a good evening snack. Especially, when the evenings are cold and rainy. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, enjoy!

Happy Weekend folks!

Bangalore Street Style Tomato Puri Chaat Recipe | Tomato Slice Recipe

Yum

Popular Bangalore Street food, made by topping tomato slices with a mix of sweet and spicy chutneys and topped off with salted puffed rice.

Bangalore Street food made by topping tomato slices with a mix of sweet and spicy chutneys and topped off with salted puffed rice

Do you want something (some what) healthy, that could ignite your taste buds? And how much more convenient would it be if this "healthy-tastebud-igniter" were ready in 15 minutes? 

Awesome!!! Right?

Presenting Tomato Puri or Tomato Slice Chaat, right from the streets of Bangalore. 

This chaat uses tomatoes like canapes. Tomato slices are flavored with sweet and tangy Tamarind-Date Chutney and the fresh and spicy Mint-Coriander Chutney. Top it up with some finely chopped onions, grated carrots and chopped coriander for added crunch. It also makes it almost a salad!! Wait, there are more toppings - the quintessential Sev, the only unhealthy thing out here. Sev is deep fried savory strands made from gram flour and is always present in any chaat. It is available in all super markets/ Indian stores very easily. After the sev, the whole plate is covered with a layer of salted puffed rice or churmuri or murmura.

If you are wondering why this is called "Puri" when there is no wheat and nothing has been deep fried, let me enlighten you my friend. The puri in the Tomato Puri is the puffed rice. Areas around Bangalore refer to it as "Kadle Puri" and hence, the puri since it overshadows the entire plate.

The chaat vendors also make versions where they replace the tomato slices with slices of cucumber. You can try that too, or make a mix of both.

Prep Advice: 
  • Since puffed rice has a tendency to soften when exposed to moisture, I suggest you add it only when you are ready to serve. 
  • The chutneys can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge. The Tamarind-Date Chutney will last several weeks, while the Mint Coriander Chutney stays good for 2-3 days.

Bread Pizza Cups [Video]

Yum
Pizza in a cup - cups made with bread, filled with your favorite pizza toppings and sauce, topped with cheese and baked until the bread is crisp and cheese is oozy.

cups made with bread, filled with pizza toppings,sauce and cheese and baked

Tell me, do you love Pizza? Did you just say yes??? Then you will LOVE this recipe.

So, since you asked for more snacks, I've been sharing recipes for snacks here. Just early this week, I shared the recipe for Masala Bread Toast - a popular bakery item in Bangalore. And today, I bring to you Pizza in a cup. Cute, right?

These Pizza cups are straight out easy to make and they are highly customizable. All you need are fresh bread slices, your favorite pizza sauce, toppings - again just use what you love or you have leftover in the fridge, and cheese. Yes, lots of cheese. I say the cheese is never enough. 

Okay, so there is a reason I mentioned fresh bread slices up there. The fresher the bread, the softer and easier to work with. The bread won't crumble when you try to shape them. I had a few slices that just crumbled on touch, so bad for the pizza cups. Use wholewheat bread to make it healthier.

cups made with bread, filled with pizza toppings,sauce and cheese and baked

Next, the Pizza Sauce. I made my own sauce following an older recipe of Eggplant Pizza, and I think this Basil Almond Pesto will also go famously. You can get creative and use this Manchurian Sauce instead or you can just buy the Pizza Sauce. If you don't want to go through all the fuss, just use Ketchup and add some Italian seasoning or Oregano to it.

The best part of any Pizza is the toppings. I kept mine super simple - chopped tomatoes, capsicum and sweet corn. It tasted delicious. But this is where you want to get creative and add what you love or as I suggested before, just use up leftovers. Also, a brilliant way to sneak in those healthy veggies your family won't eat.

I topped my Pizza Cups with Mozzarella cause I love the way the cheese melts and gets all stringy. Use any cheese you love, but remember, for cheese, less is never more!! Add more cheese, always!

So where all can you show these Pizza Cups off, let see:

  • High Tea - These Pizza cups will perfectly complement those cute little pastries you have for high tea
  • Kid's birthday parties - What's more fun is you can make the kid's add their own toppings. 
  • Cocktail Parties - let's just agree, these are perfect for any party, really!
  • Snack boxes?? I wouldn't highly recommend this, cause the bread may get soggy, but if you have non-fussy family, I say go ahead. I actually kept aside a few for 2-3 hours and ate them later and they still held and were just as tasty.
