Seven steps to make the perfect curd

CurdCurd

1. Curd is made by adding a sample of curd (also known as curd culture, curd bacteria, lactic acid bacteria, etc.) to warm milk, and allowing the mixture to ferment in a closed container in a warm place till it sets firmly. In summer, it sets in around 5 hours; but in winter it takes longer, any time between 8 to 15 hours!

2. Curd sets faster when kept overnight in a warm place in a steel container.

3. At times, a pinch of sugar can be added to the milk before fermenting it, to make sure the resulting curd is not too sour.

4. Always cover the cultured milk with a lid, for it to set properly.

5. When adding the curd culture to the milk, make sure the milk is warm. If it is too cold, it will not set. If it is too hot, it will either curdle immediately or give you watery curds.

6. Use a whisk to combine the small curd sample with the milk, so that the sample disperses well and gives you a good thick curd.

7. The readymade ‘set curds’ available in India are often not useful as cultures to make homemade curd. So if you need a sample to make curds, try to buy natural curd from a local dairy or get a homemade sample from a friend.
