After taking bath, Bihari breakfast Chura Dahi Tilkut” (Beaten Rice, Yogurt with Pounded Sesame Sweet) are consumed on Makar Sankranti.
Yogurt plays a key role in this festival but it is more difficult to prepare curd in winter than in summer. In summer you put curd in milk in any corner of the house or kitchen, it easily freezes in two to three hours, but on the flipside, it is not the case in winter. Here are easy steps to solve your problem:
First of all buy full cream milk then pure buffalo milk, which will help you get thick curd.
Heat until the milk is simmered three to four times.
Let the warm milk cool down.
Add two teaspoons of curd to it. For example, if you have taken half a liter of milk, add two teaspoons of curd to it.
Once you add curd to the milk, stir it well for a couple of minutes. Beat it well if you want. The more you will beat the milk, the better it will get frozen.
After kneading, cover it and keep it in a place where the temperature is warmer than other places. Such as casserole, flour box or close it in a cooker.
In four to seven hours, your good quality thick curd will be ready.
