Whether you are cooking Dahi kofta curry or are looking for a Greek yogurt substitute, this Hung Curd recipe checks all the boxes. It uses just one simple ingredient: yogurt. Plus, you don’t need special equipment to make it at home. So easy, so healthy!
The first step is to spoon the yogurt into a cheesecloth placed over a fine-mesh sieve. Next, tie the corners of the cheesecloth into a knot to squeeze out the excess whey and let the yogurt hang over the sink for 30 to 45 minutes. You can save the whey to use in other recipes that call for whey, such as Indian flatbread called chapati. Finally, the yogurt is pressed by placing a heavy object such as a ceramic bowl on top of it. Transfer the whole thing to the fridge, and within 4 to 8 hours, the strained yogurt is ready to use.
