My family is fond of dahi kababs so whenever we go out for elaborated dinner we used to order it as starter. So one day i thought of cooking it at home and nailed it.It is made from hung curd and crispy from outside and soft from inside.
400 grams Curd (i used Amul masti dahi )
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp chaat masala
1 finely chopped green chilli
3-4 tbsp of bread crumbs or roasted gram flour/besan
2 tbsp coriander mint chutney
2-3 tbsp oil for shallow frying kababs
Method: Take curd in muslin cloth ,tie it and hang it on tap for around 4-5 hours, we will get hung curd by this process.Take out this curd in bowl and add salt ,red chilli powder ,garam masala ,chaat masala and green chilli ,mix well with help of spoon.Its difficult to make kababs with this mixture so add 2-3 tbsp of bread crumbs or roasted besan to make it thick batter ,remember don't add too much of bread crumbs or besan it will destroy the taste of dahi kababs which should be soft, moist and tangy in taste. Keep this mixture aside for 15- 20 mins .
For stuffing , take 1-2 tbsp of bread crumbs in another bowl, add coriander mint chutney ,salt to taste and raisins. Mix well.
Take small ball size mixture of hung curd by applying all purpose flour on ur hands so that it shouldn't stick to ur hands and flatten it with cavity in centre to fill 1 tsp stuffing inside.Roll it gently with hands ,flatten it a bit to give shape of kabab.Prepare all kababs like this and heat oil in non stick pan and shallow fry from both sides till they are golden brown in color.
Serve hot with your choice of dip .
