Cheese/hung curd stuffed cutlet or a take on the Indian Dahi kabab. Perfect for evening snack or a cocktail party.
For this Blog Hop Wednesday (yeah I know I am late again sigh, I must do something about my time management skills soon!) the blog assigned was the talented Priya’s Now Serving. I spent a lot of delicious time on her blog before I zeroed in on the dish I wanted to make – dahi kabab!
So many dishes so little time, the world isn’t fair actually! I surprisingly followed the recipe quite closely this time. The biggest change I did was to replace the cream cheese she mentioned in the post with hung curd. I love the flavour of dahi in my kababs and also the fact that curd seemed healthier (and cheaper) option was an added advantage.
So this awesome dish was made and much enjoyed by all in the family. Honestly, I love kababs of all sorts. This one is equally loved. Kababs are amazing starters, aren’t they? They can be made so versatile. Whether it is vegetarian or non-vegetarian, it is super yummy. A great cocktail and an amazing starter and the evening is pretty much awesome 🙂
This dahi kabab is actually pretty easy to make. If you keep the ingredients ready, then it is just a matter of deep frying or shallow frying those kababs when you have it. They are great even for evening dinner. Add a salad and a soup with it, and trust me, it is just perfect dinner.
These kababs are best served with some imli chutney or saunth and some green chutney. But if you run out of them or are too tired for that, then tomato ketch-up serves just perfect too.
