Dahi badey is a delicious and popular snack and street food made with gram flour (besan) and curd. It is made differently in various states across India. Dahi badey is a popular snack at my home and I am sharing the recipe of Dahi badey the way we make at home. It is quick, easy and delicious and a great snack you can turn to on those rainy or winter evenings.
