Spicy Hung Curd Dip

There are times when I get very hung up on certain dishes and ingredients and keep repeating them so often that the husband and daughter finally do an intervention only for me to get obsessed over the next dish. Now it is the hung cure time. I keep straining the curd in the cheesecloth and then hunt around for a recipe to use it up.

And is it not the perfect time to be hung up on hung curd when I have a ‘Condiments’ theme for the Blogging Marathon this week. This is a quick dip that only needs few basic ingredients always available at home and a blender. This dip works with chips as well as vegetables and is a nice one to have handy for guests.

Recipe adapted from here


1/4 cup Hung curds

2 Tomatoes, medium

1/2 tsp Curry powder

Pinch of Red chilly powder



  • Chop the tomatoes roughly
  • Add it along with all the ingredients to a blender jar
  • Blend it to a smooth consistency
  • Enjoy with carrots or chips!


  1. To make hung curd, add some regular homemade or store bought curds to a cheesecloth or kitchen towel. Tie the cloth and hang it over a vessel. The end of the cloth should not touch the bottom of the vessel to ensure the whey doesn’t go back into the curds. Keep it in the fridge for 24 hours and hung curd is ready for use

This is my post for the Blogging Marathon for the theme, ‘Condiments’.

    There was a time when I also used to hung up curds like a hung up maniac..luckily I got over that phase..anyway having a choice to work with hung curds is a great thing. I love this one, should surely taste so good. Did the raw tomato make the dip taste uncooked? and you are so English when you say curry powder, what curry powder is this girl?

      No Valli, the raw taste of the tomatoes was not strong and did not impact the dish. My friend gifted me a pack of curry powder which I am trying to finish….hence the β€˜Peter’ language πŸ˜‰

  4. That dip with tomatoes look so good. I love the hung curd texture. Not too creamy and yet creamy enough to pass my kid’s taste buds. Curry powder is an interesting addition to the dip.

  7. Very interesting dip with curd and tomatoes . I have always used herbs or cucumbers , new one for me ! A must try .

  8. I love adding chopped tomatoes to my raita but adding them in the hung curd is a nice idea. This dip is calcium and protein packed too.

    Tomatoes and hung curd goes well, and this dip looks like a great idea to go along with chips

  10. A super easy dip to make. So now you got me craving for it with a bag of chips! Next time add a bit of the Amul or any cheese spread you get to it… tastes awesome.
