Hung curd sandwich is very healthy easy to make breakfast. You can pack this Dahi sandwich in the kid’s lunch box also as the sandwich stays fresh for 4-5 hours. Just make sure that the hung curd you use for this recipe is not very sour.
We all know the health benefits of curd. Adding hung curd in sandwiches gives the taste of cheese while you enjoy the health benefits of curd. What could be better than that?
This sandwich will remind you of Dahi ke Kebab in taste. Another point in its favor 😉
I have learned the recipe from my husband’s Buaji. She was visiting us in April and we were discussing my blog and recipes in general. And she said okay you have to try this recipe. I am sure your kids will love it and if they do you can share it on the blog.
My kids loved the recipe. Almost as much as they love Masala Grilled Toast and Roti Pizza 🙂
I have added some more vegetables to the sandwich and I have added Chaat masala and Oregano also as my kids love their flavor. But you can skip them if you do not want them.

Just came across this blog while searching for lunch box ideas for my 7 and 3 year very picky eaters . I loved all the recipe s – tried the poha tikki and aalu poori so far and they turned out really good. Thanks for sharing.
I had a question reg this hung curd sandw – . I am sure they are very yummy when served hot and fresh. But won’t they become really soggy in lunch box by recess because of tomatoes and curd. Have you personally tried sending them in your kids lunch ? Could you please let us know.
Thanks Sneha. Yes you are right that hung curd sandwich tastes best when hot and fresh. But I have sent these in kids tiffin and they liked them even though they were a little soggy. Let them cool down completely before packing them. and please make sure that the hung curd you use should not be sour or watery.
you can make them at home and keep for 3-4 hours if your kids still like them then you can also send them in kids tiffin box.Hope that helps 🙂
Easy to prepare…yummy to eat…Perfect for bachelors…. Thank you!
Thanks Ankit ☺
Nidhi they turned out very delicious. Easy to make and nutritious also. My husband loved them. Got something new to make for breakfast. Keep posting such easy to make and nutritious recipes.
So glad to hear that Gunjan 🙂
A delicious way to pack vegetables in a very healthy sandwich which uses hung yogurt to give the creaminess without the unnecessary calories. Wonderful lunch box idea for both kids and biggies alike.
Thanks Piyali. That is so true. My husband and I also love these sandwiches same as my kids 🙂
