Here's How You Can Make Dahi Papdi Pops At Home:
Papdi - 250 grams
Dahi - 250 grams
Pomegranate Seeds - 1 cup
Cashew Nuts - 50 grams
Ketchup - 3 tablespoon
- To begin with, add dahi to a bowl and whisk it till a thick and creamy consistency is attained. You can either use a hand blender or spoon for this. For this recipe, dahi shouldn't be of dripping consistency as it won't hold together the other ingredients perfectly. Better still, use hung curd for this recipe.
- Now, take a plate and place papdi pieces on it. Take a spoonful of dahi and top it over each piece of papdi separately.
- Once this is done, add two-three pomegranate seeds over the papdi along with one cashew nut each.
- Gently drizzle tomato ketchup over the papdi pieces and you're good to go. You may sprinkle a bit of chaat masala to add a tang to the recipe.
