Potato Yogurt Kebabs-Aloo Dahi ke Kebab

 Potato Yogurt Kebabs-Aloo Dahi ke Kebab: These melt in your mouth kebabs are made using yogurt, potatoes and Indian spices. Lightly fried and served with favorite dip for a perfect nosh. 
These Potato Yogurt Kebab-Aloo Dahi ke Kebab are one of my favorite Indian snacks and they are just perfect with a hot cup of tea. I posted this recipe 2 years back with just one closeup picture and always used to think that I should post new pictures, so here we are 🙂
Potato Yogurt Kebab - Aloo Dahi ke Kebab
There’s a funny story with these pictures too as I made them for an evening tea with my friends and being the superly excited host I am, I literally forgot to take pictures when they were ready. It was right when I served them that I realized what just happened. So the pictures you’re seeing are the ones which were left for me. So here I’m with my share of these Potato Yogurt Kebab-Aloo Dahi ke Kebab as the rest were gone even before I could say anything.
If you’re trying these Potato Yogurt Kebabs-Aloo Dahi ke Kebab for the first time then you’re definitely in for a treat. The recipe is very simple…It’s prepared using the most common kitchen ingredients i.e. potato, yogurt along with green chilies, ginger, and some mild spices. It’s a change from the traditional kebab recipes as it uses very fewer ingredients and is light on the palette. The kebabs are unbelievably soft and just melts in your mouth. (Here’s my old picture of the kebab freshly cooked in a pan – its clicked in the kitchen hence the color is slightly dark)
This can be a great appetizer for parties or can be used as stuffing for wraps/burgers or just a goto mid-afternoon snack. You can prepare these Potato Yogurt Kebab-Aloo Dahi ke Kebab a day in advance or freeze for up to a week. Goes great with chutneys/dips/sauce.

::  TIP ::

1. The potatoes in this recipe need to be kneaded (by hand) to form an extremely soft, smooth dough.       That’s the secret to a melt in your mouth kabob.

2. The yogurt has to be absolute without any water or simply use greek yogurt.

    These kebabs look delicious! Great tip about the yogurt. I wonder if it would work with a thick non-dairy yogurt.

      Thanks Amy. It will work with any Vegan Yogurt too, however it needs to be plain or non-flavored as you don't want fruit flavored kebabs ;)

    In my Mexican culture we make a potato cake very similar to this. It is incredible how many similarities the Indian cuisine has with the Mexican cuisine. The use of the condiments, the spices and the many vegetarian dishes we celebrate.

    Well I am a potato lover, so these are right up my alley. I would have never thought to have this savoury dish with a cup of tea. Very interesting indeed. However....I would serve these for brunch or as a side at dinner. Delicious for sure.

    Going back through old posts and updating the photos is something I've been trying to do as well. So, bravo to you for getting another one updated. :) I think you picked a wonderful recipe to do - I love potato kebabs. There's a great restaurant just around the block from where I live that serves the best, but I could never figure out what was in them. I'm not sure I really put much thought into it because it gave me an excuse to keep going back. LOL. These look wonderful, Molly. I'm so hungry right now. :)
