Open the fridge in any Indian household and one thing you can always find is a bowl full of fresh yoghurt! Often known as dahi in our house, this white, creamy and cold dish is a versatile cooking ingredient. We add a little sugar to it and we get the go-to desi dessert “dahi cheeni”. Mix in some spices and veggies and we get delicious raita to pair it with our biryani or pulao. And the versatile dahi can be used to prepare curries too. Our love for yoghurt has made us shortlist some delicious vegetarian curries that you can make with a bowl of fresh dahi. These veg dahi curries will give a refreshing and delicious meal for lunch.
