    Dear Chitra m'm,

    Seeing you've been giving tips on making curds thick, here's a discovery I've made some time ago and been using it whenever I make curds now. (Somehow I'm eating less curds in Chennai as compared to Mumbai, where it was a daily affair! And also, in Chennai, I seem to feel sleepy after eating curds, or even after "more", so I avoid it - unfortunately, bec. I love curds ... would you know why it is so here?)

    Anyways, getting back to the topic at hand.. if you keep the curd container in an earthen ware pot or vessel, it will set well. That's all!

    Also, I've read long ago, curds sets better in ceramic or terracotta, which from experience I can say is correct.


    Hope this helps..
    love n regards,
    hasita

    My dear Chithra,

    Today I made PP Rasogulla, came out well. I have tried making rasogullas using different recipes for almost 12times in the last 2-3 yrs, this is the first time I got the perfect ones. The sugar measurement was also perfect. The only problem I had was with the shapes, they were not perfect round ones like in your picuture, but little flat. I squeezed the paneer very well before processing in the food processor. I used 2% fat milk. Could you please guide me as to what are the points that I should take care to get perfect balls. Please take your own time to reply back.

    Thanks in advance.

    Love and regards
    Priya

    Dear Latha,
    My Sis-IL tells me, there is a small shop near Kapali temple which sells it. Sometimes it is available in Karpakambal mess.This is one thing I get from Madurai only - amma is not agile enough to make these anymore. But she has given her recipe to a girl who makes it the same way! Infact I have a good amount. If amma can collect it, I am willing to give! Not a problem at all, frankly!
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chitra,
    I just realized that you have posted Iyengal pulikachal while going through your responses. I'll definitely try it this weekend and post my feedback.

    Love

    Dear Hasita,
    It is nice to see you more now in my forum! :)
    I have given in the tips to set curds in terrecotta or ceramic, I think.
    I use either of them or stone-pot (kalchatti - best), if none of these, tupperware. I never use metal.
    I find that in Chennai weather, it sets fine normally. Only in "our winter", there is necessity to keep in another vessel.Ofcourse, casseroles are also very good.
    Chennai curds are so good - why don't you like them, Hasita??
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Nands,
    In my younger age, amma used to say that some like to make it with turdhal, but thattaipayaru gives "non-sticky", uthi-uthir(on cooking ofcourse) karuvadams!
    We seem to be doing research!!
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chitra,
    I just went through the Iyengar Pulikachal recipe. Being in US I don't have access to varali manjal. Can I powder methi and then mix it with normal turmeric powder? In that case, how many spoons of turmeric powder should I use?

    Love
    Hema
