  • Strainer 
  • Bowl
  • Cups 
  • Muslin cloth
  • Container 
  • Spoon 
  • Spatula
  • Electric blender


  • Cups  of full fat curd about a liter of milk
  • Sweetener of your taste
  • tsp  Cardamom powder or 4 green cardamoms
  • Pinch of saffron strands
  • ½ tbsp Warm milk
  • 6 Sliced almonds


How to Make Hung Curd

  • Place your strainer on a wide bowl. Now place your cheese cloth or muslin cloth on it.
  • Pour the curd/yogurt on it. On an average a liter of milk makes about four to five cups of yogurt.
  • You can use any plain and fresh yogurt. Try and look for a brand that is high on fat.
  • I make my own yogurt at home with full cream milk.
  • Please ensure that the curd/yogurt is not sour at all.
  • Please ensure that the curd/yogurt is not sour at all.
    Hung curd for shrikhand
  • Bring the edges of the muslin cloth close to each other. Now tie one corner around it. Make sure it is tight.
  • Press gently and the whey will start dripping from the cloth.
  • If you have a hook in you refrigerator then hang it there, with a bowl below. Or hang it anywhere in the kitchen and leave a bowl below it.
  • Forget about it for at least four to five hours. Don’t worry if you forget about it and remember it in the morning it will be just fine.
  • When you hang the cloth ensure that the whey does not touch the strainer or cloth.
  • When the curd is ready remove it from the cloth and put in a sealed container in the fridge.
  •  Don’t throw the whey you can use it any gravy or while making brown rice.
  • The hung curd should resemble cream cheese. Generally a kilogram or four cups of curd will yield about 400gms of hung curd.
