Dahi ke Sholay: A Quick and Delicious Indian Starter Recipe!

Preparing hung curd in advance will make things easier for you. For that, take a bowl and put a strainer over it.

Then, spread a muslin cloth over the filter and add 2 cups of chilled yogurt to it. Bring all the edges of the cloth together and squeeze the excess whey lightly. 

Make a knot and hang it above the kitchen sink. Leave it for 30 to 45 minutes and place it back on the strainer.

Place a heavy object on the curd and strain it. Transfer it to the fridge and leave it for 4 to 6 hours. Your hung curd is ready. 

Now, combine this hung curd with veggies and stuff the filling inside the moist bread. Fry the bread slices and enjoy. Now, let’s see how you can make this amazing appetizer for your next party.
