Dahi CutletsIngredients:

  • Hung curd(Or Greek yogurt) – 1 cup
  • ½ Onions (small) – Finely chopped
  • 1-2 green chillies – Finely chopped
  • Dhaniya (Coriander) -1 tablespoon – Finely chopped
  • Mozzarella cheese – Grated- 2-3 tablespoons (You can substitute this with grated paneer, but in that case increase the breadcrumbs by 1 tablespoon)
  • Bread crumbs- 4-5  tablespoons
  • Salt to taste
  • Red Chilli Powder to taste
  • Garam Masala– 1 teaspoon (Use less if you want it less spicy)
  • Cooking Oil –  as needed

Servings: 2-4 persons

Preparation Time: 20 mins.

Cooking Time: 8 to 12 mins.


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and divide them into 6-8 equal sized portions.

Gently flatten them into shape of cutlets using your palms and set aside.

Heat oil in a shallow pan.

Shallow fry the cutlets and keep turning them gently every 2-3 minutes or so. Be careful while turning as these will be very soft at this point.

Once cutlets are well-cooked and brown on both sides, turn off the heat.

Dahi cutlets are ready to be served. Serve them hot with ketchup or green chutney or both.
