Dahi toast. Healthy and flavorful toast loaded with cooling yogurt and your favorite vegetables. This delicious sandwich is finished with a light tempering or tadka of mustard seeds and curry leaves. Yum!
Dahi or yogurt may not be the first thing that springs to your mind when thinking about a sandwich. But trust me, adding a little creamy yogurt always brighten up your sandwiches and brings in a cool, refreshing touch.
Dahi toast, also known as dahi tadka sandwich or dahi sandwich, features vibrant vegetables tossed in spiced yogurt. The highlight of this sandwich is the flavorful and beautiful tadka or tempered spices.
How To Make Dahi Toast
The filling of this sandwich is a beautiful combination of yogurt with vibrant veggies like onions, carrots and bell peppers (capsicum). The best part? There’s no cooking involved. So make sure you chop all the veggies very finely. I have used Greek yogurt in this recipe, however, you can sub with any plain thick yogurt. The keyword here is “thick”. The yogurt needs to be very thick so you will get the right consistency. And the best choice is always Greek yogurt.
Now, if you don’t want to use Greek yogurt, regular hung yogurt will do the trick. Just place the yogurt in a muslin cloth in a strainer and place it in the refrigerator overnight. The excess water from yogurt will drain eventually leaving thick delicious yogurt.
Once you mix all the above ingredients together and season with salt and pepper, spread it on a thick slice of sourdough or your favorite bread.
Now the tadka or tempering. Heat up a little oil in a pan, and fry mustard seeds and a few curry leaves. Pop the sandwiches in the pan and toast both sides. It’s just like toasting your sandwich with butter, but a lot healthier and super flavorful.
Trust me, this dahi toast is the next level sandwich you need to try!
