How to Make Curd Cheese Directions
  1. Pass the curd through a fine mesh sieve or two if the quantity of the curd is too much. Rest the sieve/s over a pitcher.
  2. Cover the curd in the sieve with a cling film and put some weight over it to squeeze out the curd water.
  3. Keep emptying the pitcher at regular intervals to prevent the water collected from touching the sieve and preventing the cheese from becoming dry. Keep in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  4. The curd cheese can be stored in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days.
