My Notes:

  • Use thick curd to get more quantity of hung curd.
  • Adjust sugar as per your preference.
  • You can add a mix of chopped nuts of your choice.Mittu is not fond of nuts so I just garnished it.You can even mix it with curd.
  • After refrigerating it becomes even more thick.
  • Use curd that is not sour.
