Curds or ‘dahi’ is a food that Indians like to have any time of the day – not only with their meals but also as a snack!
Some dishes like parathas seem incomplete if they are not served with curds. Curd is not only relished plain, but also used to make wonderful dishes like Kadhis and raitas .
Not only that, good fresh curd is essential to make chaats like Dahi Puri , Dahi Vadas , Moong Dahi Misal and Dahi Kachori too.
The best part is that Basic Homemade Curd is quite easy to make. It is however important to have a sample of homemade curd to make good curds as store-bought ones don’t work most of the time.
So, if you do not have curds made the previous day, try to get a tablespoon or two of it from a neighbour or good friend.
- Warm the milk.
- Add the curds, mix well and cover.
- Keep aside until the curds set (approximately 5 to 6 hours). During the cold climate, place inside a cupboard or closed oven to set.
- Refrigerate after the curds have set and use as required.
