7 Easy Snacks You Can Make With Curd (Dahi) This Summer

Curd is a must-have food during summer.


  • Curd is known for its cooling properties.
  • Curd is an excellent food to have during summer.
  • Here are some easy snacks you can make with curd.

As the temperatures soar and we approach the summer season, we start craving for cooling foods and drinks. Curd becomes a part of our everyday diet for its refreshing effect. Curd, or dahi (as we call it in Hindi), is one of the best foods to have in summer, not just because of its cooling properties but also for many other health benefits it offers alongside. Curd is an acclaimed prebiotic food that helps in flushing out bad bacteria and fostering good bacteria in the gut, improving our digestion system significantly. Curd is also packed with other nutrients like calcium, vitamin B-2, proteins etc., making it a nutrient-rich food.

We mostly pair our regular Indian meals with a bowl or curd or raita, but many people don’t like the taste of plain dahi. For them, these snacks recipes made with curd could pose as a great way to include curd in diet.
