Is there anything as remotely refreshing and versatile as curd? The humble probiotic lends itself to thousands of culinary preparations across the country. Dahi Puri to Dahi ki Phulki, Dahi Bhalle to Dahi Papdi Chaat - curd can be used as a cooling agent as well as a flavourful ingredient. The slightly sour tinge of curd goes well with a variety of Indian recipes which are relatively less explored. Gravies prepared with yogurt as the base have a light and flavourful edge which is incomparable to anything else.
