These ‘Potato Yogurt Kebab – Aloo Dahi ke Kebab’ are one of my favorite Indian snack 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 🙂
There’s a funny story with these pictures too as I made them for an evening tea with my friends and being the super 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 myself. So here I’m with my share of two kebabs 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 on 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 this a day in advance or freeze for up to a week.
Goes great with chutneys/dips/sauce.
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.
