  • Full cream milk - 1 litre
  • Curd or Lemon juice - 1/2 cup or 2 tbsp


  • Boil the milk in medium low flame for 5 minutes. Stir it occasionally. When it's about to boil add curd or lemon juice. Stir it gently. The mixture will start to curdle.
  • Continue stirring gently until it completely curdles.
  • Set the colander/strainer in a large bowl. Place a cheese cloth or muslin cloth over it. Pour the curdled mixture to it gently.
  • After transferring the entire curdled mixture, gather the corners of the cloth and tie it up under sink. Let it stand for 1 hour at least or until the water is completely drained off. Squeeze out the cheese cloth occasionally to drain off the water. Once the water is completely drained off , open the cloth.
  • Place it in a flat platform and keep a weight over it (I placed in iron dosa tawa and a pan over it and used a big stone to press it).
  • Wait for 2 to 3 hours to get it set. Then open and remove from cloth carefully. Refrigerate it overnight and cut into cubes in the morning and store.
