Rich, richer, richest – you will be at a loss how to rate these creamy and soft Dahi ke Kebabs. Interestingly, hung curd forms the main ingredient of these kebabs, supplemented by paneer and bread crumbs for volume and shape. This trio is perked up with herbs, masalas and cashewnuts, not to forget the innovative addition of deep-fried onions, which gives an irresistible crunch and intense flavour to the kebabs. This kebab is quite different from the lot, because it has a unique texture, which is not crisp, but soft and creamy with the mild crunch of onion in between. Enjoy this unique starter immediately with green chutney.

Dahi Ke Kebab recipe - How to make Dahi Ke Kebab

Preparation Time:    Cooking Time:    Total Time:     Makes 8 kebabs (8 kebab )
Show me for kebabs

1/2 cup hung curds (chakka dahi)
1 1/4 cups grated paneer (cottage cheese)
1/2 cup fried onions
3 tbsp chopped cashewnuts (kaju)
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)
5 tbsp bread crumbs
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala
2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
a pinch of sugar
salt to taste
bread crumbs for rolling
oil for deep-frying

For Serving
green chutney
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and mix well.
  2. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a 50 mm. (2”) diameter round kebab.
  3. Roll each kebab in bread crumbs so that the kebabs are evenly coated from both the sides.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep-fry 2 kebabs at a time till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.
  5. Drain on an absorbent paper. Serve immediately with green chutney.

Handy tip:

  1. At step 4, do not turn the kebab too frequently while deep-frying, else they will break.

Hi, I am following a low carb diet. In this recipe, apart from the bread crumbs, everything is good for my diet. Could you suggest something else to use instead of bread crumbs which is low in carbohydrates? Regards, Anil

Tarla Dalal    Hi Anil, You can avoid the bread crumbs and try cooking the kebab directly on a oil greased tava on a slow flame.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Anuradha, Yes you can but be very careful as they are very soft and do not fry to many at a time

Hi can I shallow fry instead of deep frying.
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    Thanks Rajshree. Shallow frying the kebabs will not give a crispy covering, and also if shallow fried, it will be difficult to turn over and cook as it is very delicate to handle. I would suggest you to deep fry these kebabs.
