I like to eat and since I am a mom, I have to like to cook as well. Jokes apart, I actually love to try and tweak recipes so that I can churn out something yummy without spending hours in the kitchen! So here’s is my super fast recipe of Yoghurt Kabaab AKA Dahi ke kabaab. Do try and enjoy!


When I was browsing for its recipe on internet, I found that some steps were really very elaborate like take yoghurt and hang it for 10-12 hours. I wanted a shortcut so I took 3 bowls of regular yoghurt and squeeze it for some time putting it in a muslin cloth. Not bad because after a few minutes, I got cream cheese-like consistency.

Other ingredients:

  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • Paste of one green chilli and ginger, garlic
  • Finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 4-5 teaspoons of gram flour aka besan
  • Garam masala, chaat masala, coriander and cumin powder as per taste
  • Salt as per taste
  • Sooji for rolling the kabaabs


  • Roast 4-5 teaspoons of gram flour AKA besan on low to medium flame. Wait for that fragrance. Ensure it doesn’t get burnt.
  • Mix onion and all the other ingredients mentioned above together with the creamy cheesy yoghurt.
  • Add the roasted besan to this mixture and knead it to the desired consistency.
  • Make kabaabs of your favourite shape – round, oval, heart, cylinder etc.
  • Roll them in sooji
  • Pan fry them
  • Serve with mint chutney, tomato ketchup, chilli sauce etc.

Your home-made, healthier, nutritious Yoghurt Kabaab are ready to relish. All in the family will love it!


  • People who don’t eat onion and garlic, can skip it.
  • Along with onion, it is possible to add finely chopped mixed vegetables for added nutrition.
  • These are pan fried kabaabs so less oil is needed. Alternatively, Air Fryer should be a good option too.

Do try and lemme know how did you like it! Also don’t forget to share your tips and tricks. Happy Foodie time to all.
