The first step to making homemade dahi/curd is to have a good starter. But how do you get your hands on a good starter! I have the solution! Try using this wonderful technique to make starter, it’s tried & tested…believe me it works! 🙂
Try using a green chilli for making dahi! I used fresh green chilli with stem in warm milk. It worked…but, be patient it does take almost 24 hours to deliver! However I think it’s a great choice for developing starter for first timers!
Boil milk. Cool to lukewarm. Add one whole green chilli. Cover & leave undisturbed in a warm corner of the house, till it sets into dahi.
Once you have your starter yoghurt culture, you can follow my tips to make thick creamy delicious homemade dahi! Do try making it, you will never go back to eating store bought!
