Social media is not just entertainment but an immensely informative space for foodies to be. We often encounter interesting videos from our favourite bloggers, who teach us new and innovative recipes and techniques that we can incorporate into our kitchen. Not all of these cooking tricks, however, would be new to us and we tend to be quite familiar with some of them. Recently, a blogger showed the process of preparing Dahi at home with the help of a small culture of bacteria. Desi foodies were quick to respond and point out that this practice was called setting curd or 'Dahi Jamana' in Indian households. We had actually been doing this for aeons and it was nothing new for us.
Take a look at the full video here:

The video clip was shared on Twitter by user @dakuwithchaku, where it received over 255k views. It also clocked in over 11.2k likes and several hundred retweets as well.
In the blogger's video, she demonstrates how dahi or yogurt can be made at home with the culture "Did you know you can make an infinite supply of yogurt from just one tablespoon," said the blogger in the video. "Next time you buy yogurt, save one tablespoon and you'll never have to buy yogurt again," she added. She then proceeds to show the process of setting curd by heating up milk, then mixing the lactobacillus into it and leaving it to set. Since the climate was cold, she said it took up to 10-12 hours for the Dahi to form. The blogger recommended saving a tablespoon for the next batch of curd too!
Desi Twitter users were quick to react to the video of setting curd from scratch. "Must be using internet explorer," wrote one user while another said, "wait till they find out you can make butter and ghee at home too!"
Take a look at the reactions to the video:

In fact we don't even need the spoonful of yogurt from the packet.
