Dahi ke kabab recipe

Dahi ke kabab| Dahi ke kebab is an easy party starter snack recipe. I have first tried this for my cookery demo with Alvas yogurt Singapore, last year. This dahi kabab was a super hit in that cookery demo. Yesterday i had a big batch of home made yogurt,so wanted to try this try out this kabab recipe again to post in Jeyashri's kitchen. I took the video of dahi kabab recipe and shared my lunch platter also in Jeyashri's kitchen Instagram. The first time i have seen this recipe in Venkatesh bhat's show. I remember him using chutney dal powder(pottukadalai)as a binding agent for making this kabab. I have once tried with that but some how i felt gram flour | kadalai maavu suits my taste. You can use millet flour or sathu maavu too.
The kabab was super crunchy outside and melting soft inside, the taste of paneer and the crunchiness of the nuts and the flavour of chaat masala complimented each other. Try this at home and let me know how it turned out.
