Take a small drop of dahi, even better buttermilk, and add that to the milk. Stir it multiple times (grandmothers say 32 times). Cover it with a lid and set it aside for up to 8-12 hrs. When the top layer appears thick, the curd is ready to eat. Have it with lunch or as a mid-meal 3-4pm post lunch.”(Instagram/jinals89)
