  • First boil the milk on low flame.
  • Once it get boiled, let the milk become warm.
  • Add the curd to the warm milk and mix it well.
  • Pour the mixture to the air tight container & close it tightly with the lid.
  • Keep it in the warm place for 4- 5 hours until it set (remove the excess water).
  • After that refrigerate the curd for another 2 – 3 hours.


I usually set the curd in the oven with light on;

    • in winter it takes 6 – 7 hours.

    • in summer 5 hours is enough to set the curd.

While boiling the milk always keep it on simmer.

Turn off it, once it get start to foam or bubble.
