Hung Curd is Curd or Yogurt drained of its water. Its thick and creamy in texture. Hung Curd is used in many Indian Recipes like Tikkas, Kababs, Wraps, Sandwiches, Dips and Chutneys. Its Low in Sugar and Carbs and high in Protein and Calcium. In this Dip we have used Mustard oil as the flavour and curry leaves and mustard seeds as tempering. Its Creamy, Rich, Flavourful and made from easily available ingredients.

One of my friends had made this Hung Curd Dip to go along with her various snacks. It was love at first taste. It just melts in mouth leaving behind the strong mustardy taste in mouth. Its very easy and simple to make. Its the healthiest alternative for cream and mayonnaise.

To make Hung Curd take 200 gms Curd and put it in a clean Muslin Cloth. Tie the Cloth and hang it for an hour to drain the water. Once water is drained, open the cloth and put the hung Curd in a bowl.

  3. 1/4 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds
  4. Few Curry Leaves

North Indian curries usually have thick, moderately spicy and creamy gravies. Usage of dry fruits and nuts is fairly common, along with dairy products like milk, cream, cottage cheese and ghee (clarified butter). Yoghurt play an important role in the cooking these dishes. Today in “Jai Ki Rasoi Se” used one of the dairy products “Fresh Cream” to make “Tamator Methi Malai”. This dish goes well when served with any Indian Bread or Flavoured Rice
