Our Mothers teach us family recipes. But we often fail to recreate that magic in our food. For sure, one reason is the way we cook, our affinity for short cuts. At Graamyam, we are making a small effort to help you to bring back your memories of food, as prepared by your mother. Here is a small curd setter, to make home curd with a whole new accent, with the earthy flavour of the clay pot. This is just enough to make curd for a person’s consumption. Curd set in a steel container can never match the flavour and richness of curd set in a terracotta vessel. Clay being porous can absorb water; therefore, when you make yoghurt in clay pots, the clay absorbs the excess water, and the yoghurt is much thicker and creamier. No other containers can match this characteristic of terracotta. Terracotta curd setters are 100% food safe as per international standards. Clay helps keep the culture of the curd at the right temperature for it to grow successfully. These curd setters help in cutting down the sourness of curd as it is made of clay which is alkaline in nature. It can balance out the acidity of the yoghurt to a large extent.
