Homemade Curd
Cuisine: Indian
Making curd at home is very easy and definitely does not require any rocket science. If you follow some simple tips, you can make smooth, thick, well set curd at home with ease.
  • ½-liter milk
  • 2 teaspoon starter curd
  1. Rinse a heavy bottom pan with water. Add raw milk to it. (rising the pan ensures that the milk does not stick to the bottom of the pan).
  2. Heat the milk pan on low to medium flame. While the milk is being heated, stir once or twice to ensure it does burn from the bottom.
  3. Allow the milk to boil. Now simmer the milk for 2-3 minutes and put off the flame.
  4. Allow the milk pan to cool down. We are looking for warm milk. Dip the little finger in the milk to check for the temperature. If it feels warm, not hot, this is the right time to add the starter curd.
  5. Add the starter to the milk and stir well, so that it dissolves completely in the milk.
  6. Now pour the milk with curd culture into the clay pots.
  7. Cover it and place it undisturbed in a warm place for 5-7 hours.
  8. One more method is to froth the milk after adding curd culture by pouring it into another container, and back to the pan, 2-3 times. this method ensures the curd does not have separate cream layers in it and also the starter dissolves and mixes uniformly in the milk.
  9. Once the curd is set, refrigerate it.
