Dahi Ke Sholay

Dahi Ke Sholay, also known as Dahi ke Kabab, is a popular Indian snack made with a filling of spiced yogurt (dahi) coated in a crispy outer layer. It's a delightful combination of creamy and crunchy textures with a burst of flavors. Here's a recipe to make Dahi Ke Sholay:


  • 2 cups thick yogurt (hung curd)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup besan (gram flour)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped bell peppers (capsicum)
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chaat masala
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying

For coating:

  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


  1. In a mixing bowl, take the hung curd (thick yogurt) and squeeze out any excess water using a cheesecloth or a clean kitchen towel. This will ensure a thick and creamy consistency for the filling.
  2. To the thick yogurt, add bread crumbs, besan (gram flour), finely chopped onions, bell peppers, green chilies, chopped coriander leaves, ginger-garlic paste, roasted cumin powder, chaat masala, red chili powder, and salt. Mix everything well to form a thick and smooth mixture.
  3. Grease your palms with a little oil and take a portion of the yogurt mixture. Shape it into cylindrical or oval-shaped kebabs. Repeat the same with the remaining mixture.
  4. In a separate plate, mix the bread crumbs and sesame seeds to prepare the coating mixture.
  5. Roll each kebab in the coating mixture, ensuring that it is evenly coated on all sides.
  6. Heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadhai over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, gently drop a few kebabs into the oil and fry them until they turn golden brown and crispy. Remove them from the oil and drain on a kitchen paper towel to remove any excess oil. Fry the remaining kebabs in batches.
  7. Serve the hot and crispy Dahi Ke Sholay as a snack or appetizer. They can be enjoyed on their own or with a chutney of your choice.
