Hanging Curds

For some reason, i had never done this, thinking it to be some exotic, difficult thing to do :)

Here are photos:

You put a hanky (a muslin cloth is recommended, a hanky works just fine) on a vessel, and plonk the curds into it

Then tie up the ends of the hanky and hang it...

Goto Bed (meaning let it hang for at least 12 hours)

The next morning, when you take it down and open it here is what you will see...

The same thing put in a nice bowl:

Its now ready to make Tzatziki or
use as a spread on toasted bread or you could also add some rosemary to it with some olive oil or you could do a fresh basil and garlic tadka in opilve oil to it or... the list is endless! Enjoy! :)

Instead of doing
"Tzatziki http://bawandinesh.blogspot.com/2008/05/tzatziki.html "

you can convert the word Tzatziki into a link that leads to

I think I shall never see a billboard as lovely as a tree ..
infact until the billboards fall, I'll never see a tree at all !
