Misti Dohi (Sweet Curd)
Milk - 1/2 litre
Curd - 1 teaspoon
Boil milk to reduce water content. Add sugar (or gudr) to taste and stir it till it dissolves.
Remove from heat and let it stand till it is lukewarm.
Take one teaspoon of curd (misti dohi or otherwise bought from a shop) and make it into a smooth paste without lumps.
Add the milk and stir so that the consistency is uniform.
Cover and allow to stand undisturbed for 4/5 hours.
If you use an unglazed earthen container then it sets better because of the absorption of water into the container.
