Easy Way To Make Hung Curd

how to set hung curd
Hung curd is nothing but thick curd, without a drop of water. Setting this kind of curd is easy - easier than most other recipes on the Internet.

I have recently learned the process to set hung curd. Do not be surprised if I say I have learned to set sweet curd too only recently. Earlier, I would set curd daily, but it would get sour. Now it never gets sour, even when I am in need of it.

Curd has remained a weakness since childhood, as Punjabis are raised on a dairy diet, which includes milk, cream (malai), butter (makhan), ghee (clarified butter), and curd (dahi). No Punjabi would ever say they do not like dairy products. We love all kinds of dairy. But of course, dairy foods are rich in calories. Not to mention, the high fat content, which threatens to raise cholesterol levels to unexpected heights - but of course, if you live a lethargic lifestyle.

Enjoy your favorite foods in moderation and work out those calories and nobody can beat your healthy physique!

I must confess I have had my share of dairy foods during childhood. I would relish cream like anything - give cookies a malai bath and pour cream in tea and enjoy that combination - yummmmm... mouth watering already! How I miss all that now!

I have left having cream and butter - my favorites when I was a kid. It's tough to quit your most-cherished foods, but I did so for health reasons. Na, I do not suffer from health problems of any sort. But I left eating these calorie- and fat-rich foods when the health bug bit me in Grade 11th. Ever since, I have not looked back.

However, I must confess my face looks skinny than ever - probably due to my reluctance to include oil and ghee in our daily diets.


Little amount of these products is necessary for proper cell functioning, and I have requested myself to start including little amount of ghee in my diet. Else, I fear getting older too soon- with wrinkles all over my face!!

So let's come back to the hung curd recipe.

When I saw people mentioning the words "hung curd", I would often wonder what it implied. Frankly, I had never thought of curd being used this way.

Neverttheless, hung curd makes a great substitute to cream in many recipes. You will find such recipes in this blog too.

Experts always advised to set hung curd in a cloth - by pouring curd in a cloth and hanging the same in the refrigerator door.

But what I do is little different.

How to set hung curd

  1. Take a big tea sieve (chai channi)
  2. Take a big deep vessel.
  3. Place the tea sieve above the vessel.
  4. Take curd and pour into the tea sieve.
  5. Let the curd water drop into the vessel beneath.
  6. Cover and keep in fridge.
  7. It will set in 3-4 hours.
  8. Isn't it an easy way to set hung curd?
  9. Use it in curries and gravies and enjoy delish, healthy food.
Here are a few recipes that use hung curd:

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.
