Cheese Onion Sandwich was introduced to me while I was in U.K, I use to stock up this sandwich spread all the time in my refrigerator from TESCO and like to have it with brown bread or white bread during my tea time. Most of the time when we happen to travel, this would be my breakfast, recalling call my beautiful memories when I was in U.K.
Cheese Onion Sandwich spread has creamy and little tangy flavor, also the crunchiness of onions balances well with cheese. Red cheese also be induced, but since I don’t have red cheese I have skipped it. A perfect breakfast or a snack box recipe for kids. Let me share the recipe…

Hung Curd is nothing but the curd is made to hang in a cloth, which helps in draining all the water and only the thick portion of the curd stays there, which can be used for variety of dishes. Most of them think this a very difficult process and buy packed ones, but this process is very easy. It consumes little time, when you are in need of hung curd you can prepare them the day before and store it in refrigerator. Let me share the recipe, also don’t forget to check out the video…

Making of Hung Curd / Hung Yougrt / Thick curd at home –
Spread the cloth over a bowl or shallow plate, pour the curd/yogurt over it, bring all the edges of the cloth together and squeeze out the water. Tie the cloth with the thread and hang it over or you can hang it in refrigerator by placing a bowl or a shallow plate below the cloth to avoid the water splitting. Hanging in refrigerator avoid the curd getting more sour in taste.
