Dahi Kebab



  • 250 gm hung curd 
  • 100 gm paneer 
  • 2 to 3 tbsp besan (dry roasted in low heat )
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onions
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp roasted and powdered cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp green fennel seeds
  • 1-2 tsp paprika or red chilli powder 
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tsp oil/ghee for pan frying
  • A pinch of rock salt


  • To soften paneer, soak it in warm water for 30 minutes.
  • Mix all the ingredients except the oil, and refrigerate it for an hour.
  • Make small balls and flatten them like tikkis.
  • Fry them in a pan over medium heat till they turn brown on both sides.
  • Dahi kebabs are quite soft, so you have to handle them carefully.
  • Serve hot off the pan with ketchup, chutney, chopped tomatoes and onions in chaat masala and lime juice. I also served some poppadums.
