How To Cook
Take 250gms curd and whip it with a spoon to make it a smooth blend. Keep aside. Heat up a cooking pan over medium flame and add about two tablespoon full of cooking oil to it. Once the oil is hot enough, add half tablespoon mustard seeds, let them temper completely. Now add half cup chopped onions, sauté till they attain a nice golden brown colour.
When you see that onions have gone transparent and have the desired colour, add a pinch of chilli powder, half tablespoon coriander powder, half teaspoon turmeric powder and salt to taste. Mix the spices to attain an even paste. Now add the whipped curd to the mixture, stir once and put off the flame immediately. Remember not to overheat or overcook the curd as it may turn rubbery.
Remove from gas-stove and stir thoroughly to mix the spices with the curd. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and it’s ready to serve.
