Dairy-Free Milk and Curd

Plant-based and dairy-free, peanut milk and curd are great vegan alternatives to their dairy counterparts. You can use peanut milk just as you would use dairy milk, and the curd/yoghurt can be used to prepare vegan raita, kadhi, etc.

The recipes are easy to make; let me show you how.

2 servings

Ingredients

  • 100 grams raw peanuts
  • 12 fresh green chilli tops: pedicel (stem) and calyx (base of stem with modified leaves)
  • 500 ml water

Instructions

  1. Soak the peanuts in fresh water for 8 hours. Afterward the soaking period, rinse the peanuts, retaining the soaking water.
  2. Blend the peanuts with the soaking water until fine and smooth. Then strain out the milk through a fine sieve and discard the residue.
  3. Heat the milk until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool down until just lukewarm. The peanut milk is now ready to use.
  4. To prepare the curd, transfer the milk to another bowl and place the chilli tops carefully, spreading them evenly on the milk.
  5. Cover the milk and leave it undisturbed for 10-12 hours or more until it sets.
  6. The peanut curd is now ready to use.
