Every Indian household has a few key ingredients stocked up in their fridge. It wouldn't be too much to say that our house would stop functioning if something like salt, yoghurt or rice would not be available at home. Yoghurt, also known as 'dahi' in Hindi, is not only an essential ingredient in many recipes but is also enjoyed as a side dish and paired with parathas, pulao and biryani. Preparing yoghurt is very easy as it just needs time to ferment and take shape. However, at times, we end up making more yoghurt that we can finish. If you have excessive dahi at home, and you are worried that it may go sour, then we have listed some tasty street foods you can prepare at home using yoghurt.
Here're 7 Street Foods You Can Make From Yoghurt/Curd/Dahi At Home:
1. Dahi Puri
