Handy tips and easy recipe to make fresh, smooth, thick and well set homemade curd. Curd is immunity boosting and has high amount of calcium.

Handy tips to remember while making curd at home.

  • Use full cream milk if you wish to have thick curd.
  • Do not add starter curd to very hot milk. It will coagulate the milk.
  • If the milk has cooled down completely, curd will not set.
  • The milk has to be warm while you add the starter curd to it. Check the temperature of the milk by touching the milk with little finger or touching the pan of the milk. You should feel warm and not hot
  • Mix the starter curd very well with the milk.
  • Keep the curd to set in a warm place covered and undisturbed.
  • In cold countries or in winter season, cover the container of curd mixture with blanket and keep in warm place or keep it in a hot pot or in an oven with light on.
  • Once the curd is set refrigerate it or else it will become sour.
  • 2 teaspoon starter curd is enough for 1/2 liter of milk. Increase the quantity of starter curd for larger quantities of milk. Also use little more starter during winter season.
  • Use earthen or clay pots to set curd for best results. But curd can be set in steel or glass container too.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2-liter milk
  • 2 teaspoon starter curd

How to make Homemade Curd?

Method:

1. Rinse a heavy bottom pan with water. Add raw milk to it. (rinsing 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.
