Making Hung Curd (optional if you want to use hung curd)

  1. Place a clean muslin cloth over a sieve or filter. Pour the curd and bring together the edges of the cloth. Then wring the cloth to drain up excess whey from curd.
  2. Place a heavy object like 2-3 ceramic bowls over the curd pack. Refrigerate for 12- 14 hours.
  3. Hung curd is ready.
Making Dahi Kebab
  1. Crumble paneer and add it to a mixing bowl along with hung curd.
  2. Add all the ingredients and mix with the spices- Catch garam masala powder, Catch jeera powder and Catch black pepper powder. Mix well, to make a non-sticky dough.
  3. Divide the dough to equal sized balls. Flatten them. Then roll them in besan. Shake them off gently to remove excess flour. Set aside for 5-7 minutes.
Frying the Dahi Kebab
  1. Heat up oil for shallow frying.
  2. When the oil is just hot enough, drop the kebabs one after the other. Next fry them on a medium flame. Flipping to the other side when one side turns golden.
  3. Fry all the kebabs until golden and crisp.
  4. Serve hot.
Recipe Notes/Suggestions:
  1. Instead of shallow frying, you can also deep fry the kebabs.
  2. Make sure the curd is not too sour.
  3. Try and use home-made curd.
