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.

Full fat curds is the healthiest snack or accompaniment you can have any time during the day. Full fat curd which is fermented milk is far healthier than low fat curd and has good protein which is particularly good for vegetarians. In addition you get calcium, magnesium and potassium, Vitamin B2 and vitamin B12. Have your curd as is or mix it with Organic Honey or make it a tasty raita by adding onions and tomato. I eat this daily and most Indian households do. But add healthy toppings to your curd! Happy cooking.
