Frequently Asked Questions About this Recipe:

Can we use regular curd instead of hung curd?

Though you can use regular yogurt, but the consistency won’t be as thick and creamy as you get when you make it with hung curd. If using regular yogurt, you may need to strain it to achieve a thicker texture.

Can I make this dip in advance?

Yes, you can make this dip a day or two in advance and store it in the refrigerator. Also it is advisable to adjust the seasoning just before serving to get the maximum flavor.
