Weight Loss: Who doesn't love to gorge on all things greasy and decadent? While cutlets and kebabs are some of the most drool-worthy snacks available at restaurants across cities, the ones who are on a weight loss diet often tend to face difficulties in finding their pick. If you happen to come under the same category and are looking for some homemade healthy snacking options, we're here to help. You can now create restaurant-style kebabs at home that are devoid of excessive calories. Bring out freshly churned curd (dahi) from the refrigerator and convert it into hung curd to make healthy and wholesome kebabs at home.
Hung curd kebabs are incredibly delicious and you're bound to experience a burst of flavours the moment you bite into them. The best part about this kebab recipe is that it is completely baked and doesn't involve any use of oil (except while greasing the baking tray), further making it weight-loss-friendly. Apart from this, the prime ingredient used in this recipe is hung curd, which itself brims with healthful properties, and further helps keep the gut healthy and running as it is a probiotic food. Another healthy addition to this kebab is that of chickpeas or chana, which makes the baked snack incredibly rich in protein content.
