What is the best way to make curd at home?


Chef at Hotel Radisson | Posted

There is handful of ways to make curd at home. One of the easiest ways is making it using starter curd. 

Take a litre of milk and boil it. Let it cool down to lukewarm start. At the same time, take 3-4 spoon of stale curd in a different bowl and stir it with a spoon to smoothen it semi-liquid state. Now add this curd to the lukewarm milk. Leave the bowl in a dark and warm place for overnight. Don’t disturb it for the next 6-7 hours. The next day you will have a full bowl of curd. Now, keep aside a small amount from this curd to make your curd for the next day. 

If you want this process to be quick, you can do it in as less as 4 hours. After completing the above mentioned steps, preheat your microwave oven at 180 degree and then keep the bowl of your prepared milk + curd inside for 4 hours. You will have your thick, creamy curd ready in no time. 

Of course, there are few other methods to make curd at home. Like one involving dried red chili. 

However, these methods aren’t as effective. Their end result is thin water-like curd. So go with the above mentioned technique and you will get the best result.
