Dahi Phulki with Sweet Corn

Dahi means yoghurt and phulki means dumplings. It is a mixture of sweet yoghurt and spicy dumplings. I gave it a twist by adding sweet corn. It is a very famous dish during Ramadan in south Asian countries.


• 1 cup gram flour (besan)

• 1 teaspoon red chilli powder

• 1 teaspoon turmeric powder

• 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder

• 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder

• 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds

• Salt as per taste

• Water for batter

• Oil for frying

• 500g yoghurt

• 2 tablespoons sugar

• Chaat masala

• 1 cup sweet corn

• Coriander and mint leaves for garnish


In a bowl add gram flour, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, coriander powder, cumin seeds, and salt. Now add water and make a thick paste. Keep the batter for 10 minutes. Heat oil in a pan, drop batter in oil with the help of small spoon one by one and make dumplings until golden brown. After frying directly drop dumplings in water for few minutes.
