Hung Yogurt

A really simple, extremely addictive, & tangy dip which is a great add-on to any menu. Its one of those 'quick to put together', 'nothing can go wrong' sorta recipes, which is a great hit and good for finger food. For kids I serve it with chips, and always add veggies like steamed broccoli, cucumber sticks,baby carrots, baby corn etc on the side.
I have to add that the dip is very nutritious when served with veggies!

You need
Curd (yogurt) – 250ml
Cream – 1 tbsp (20-30 % fat)
Garlic – 3-4 cloves / finely chopped
Green chili – 1-2 / finely chopped
Juice of 1 lemon (increase or decrease as required)
Fresh coriander leaves – 2-3 tbsp/ finely chopped
Salt to taste 
1. Hang the curd (yogurt) in cheesecloth for 2-3 hours till all the whey drips out.
2. Whisk the curd till smooth. Add the cream and lemon juice and whisk well again.
3. Add all the remaining ingredients, and mix in well with a spoon. Adjust seasoning (lemon juice, salt etc).
4. Put in a bowl, garnish with a sprig of fresh coriander. 
5. Serve with chips, or steamed vegetables like broccoli, baby corn, cheese sticks, baby carrots etc.
