I always worry when I add dahi to a dish, won’t it curdle on heating? The recipe sounds mouthwatering though.

Yes, it can. Hence you whip the curd and add it on a low flame then cook it on a low flame.

Just like Tulika said, I’m scared of adding curd to dishes because of the fear of curdling! Let me try what you said and try.

Thanks for the recipe, Rachna.

I use curd regularly in my cooking. Don’t face any problem of curdling.
