How Is It Made?

The moment you enter this small outlet, the piquant aroma of spiced hung curd will get you drooling in just no time. Although, this place serves other regular snacks like samosa, kachori, bread pakora as well, but its specialty is dahi ke sholay. This signature dish is prepared using bread and hung curd.
The hung curd used in this preparation is an in-house preparation, which is combined with a melange of spices. It is then stuffed inside the bread slices and sandwiched in a way that it looks like a round ball with rolled edges. Once this is done, the process of deep-frying begins. The snack is cooked to perfection till a crispy texture is attained. Apart from being a treat to the palate, dahi ke sholay is quite appealing to the eyes as well. This appetising delight is cut into half and served with chutney and onion bits.
