Dahi Ke Kebab/Cutlet With a Twist


healthy tikki
Tikkis or cutlets are a widely popular snacking option in India. It won;t be wrong to say that tikki rules the Indian snacking world, with every other street vendor selling these potato cutlets.
I have grown up eating these savory snacks. My mom's sister makes delectable tikkis. I remember how she used to line up all the kids and then start making tikkis - serving each of us with those lip-smacking snacks with home made sweet tamarind dip. My mouth is watering as I am writing. I think she makes the best tikkis in the world.

Coming back to this dahi ke kebab recipe. Yes, I have used 1 boiled potato here, but along with it, I have included the leftover veggies that I made for lunch. I had made santula bhajja for lunch, which is a blend of raw papaya, raw banana, parwal (pointed gourd), lauki (bottle gourd), potato, brinjal, and turai (ridge gourd). So what better way to use these green veggies than stuffing them in cutlets? These definitely made the tastiest snack on earth. Did I mention the word healthy?

Well, healthy of course - since these included green veggies, oatmeal, hung curd, roasted almonds, and roasted Bengal gram powder, with a hint of ginger and garlic. Do we need anything else to make these healthier?

Let's quickly get to the hung curd cutlet recipe:

Yogurt Cutlet Ingredients
dahi ke kebab

1 boiled potato
handful- leftover sabzi (bhaja santula- a blend of raw papaya, raw banana, parwal (pointed gourd), lauki (bottle gourd), potato, brinjal, and turai (ridge gourdcheck this Odiya stir fry recipe here)

Yogurt Croquets Procedure
pan fried dahi ke kebab or tikki


  1. Take boiled potato, leftover sabzi, and all other ingredients except oil in a bowl.
  2. Mish-mash everything well.
  3. Next take a nonstick pan/tawa (I used my iron tawa).
  4. Smear olive oil or any other oil on the tawa.
  5. Make small balls of the mixture and flatten them with palms.
  6. Roast from both sides until done on a medium flame.
  7. Enjoy with a dip of your choice. I usually do not take extra chutneys. 


Ever tried coconut tikki or nariyya bhajja, as it is known in Odisha? Do give this delicious snack a try. I love it even with steamed rice.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.
