Sour cream can make anything taste better. The versatile food has multi-pronged benefits and can be added to food while cooking or can be savoured as a side dish. Sour cream makes for an excellent base for dips and sauces or can be added to salad dressings, stuffed in tacos, or be baked to make some heart-warming cheesecakes. The uses of sour cream are many, and yet we don't really know how we can include it in our diet. Well, it's not really our fault. Sour cream is largely a part of European and American diets; and a staple in Mexican cuisine. Even in India, you will find your tacos, tortillas, quesadillas and burritos served with a generous amount of sour cream. A bite into it and you will realise its power to turn around any food and make it even more delicious.
For the unversed, sour cream is basically a cultured cream product, which is made by combining dairy with bacterial culture. The cream collected at the top of boiled milk (malai) is fermented to make it thick in texture and sour in taste. You can buy sour cream from the market but you can also easily make it at home, which would also taste better than the store-bought ones. After you get your sour cream, you should also know how to consume it. Here are some food recipes you can follow or take cue from, and make some scrumptious meals, levelled up by sour cream.
