  • 2. How To Make Homemade Yogurt (Curd)

    Curd made at home is really simple and not at all a lengthy process that most seem to think. If you able to source good curd culture from your friends or family, who have been culturing curd for a long time, that's the best way to start off. 

    Curd or Yogurt that is purchased from outside contains preservatives that aren't really great for the body. So go ahead, boil you milk, add your culture and voila you'll have your homemade curd overnight. It is good to have in summers as it helps in digestion and also cools down your body.
