Dahi Chewda

Ingredients to make Dahi Chewda

  • 1 cup Chiwda
  • 3/4- 1 Cup yogurt (or as required)
  • 1 cup Mangoes (diced)
  • 1 Cup Strawberries (hulled, washed and chopped or sliced)
  • 2 tbsp mixed Nuts & raisins (optional)
  • Honey / Sugar / Palm Sugar to sweeten the yogurt

How to make Dahi Chewda

  1. Rinse the chiwda twice and then drain the excess water using a big sieve or colander. Keep it aside for approximately 2 minutes or till the chiwda is soft. Fluff the chiwda using a fork.
  2. Transfer the chiwda to a mixing bowl and add the gently whipped yogurt (adjust the amount and consistency as preferred).
  3. Meanwhile take the glasses in which you intend to serve the dahi chiwda and start layering as desired.
  4. I started with dahi chiwda mix at the bottom and topped it with chopped mangoes. Then, again a layer of dahi chiwda and topped with chopped strawberries. Sprinkle nuts and raisins on the top, if using.

My Tip:

Note: I drizzled over some strawberry compote and it's juices (instead of simple chopped strawberries) over the Dahi Chiwda and it tasted fabulous. You can even drizzle some thick mango sauce over it. Do try it. Try to get your hands on Basmati Chewda for an authentic way of eating this dish. Preferably serve it chilled.
