Sour Cream

Hi Friends,
Sour cream is a thicken and sour cream, which is normally used in Mexican cuisine in substitute of mayo or fresh cream. It can be served as a dip with nachos or crackers.

Its low-fat cream, I will not say fully fat free because heavy cream is used but in less quantity. Sour cream is easily available in stores outside India but in India its difficult to find.

I tried this recipe at home and it is the simplest and easiest way of making sour cream at home.


Ingredients:
  • 1 cup yogurt (curd)
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 2-3 tbsp of vinegar/ lime juice (you can add more to make it more sour)
  • A pinch of sugar
  • 1/4 tsp pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp red chilly flakes
  • Salt acc.to taste

Method:
  • Tie  curd in a muslin cloth, hang it till the water drains completely. Keep it for 2-3 hrs.
  • Remove curd from the cloth.
  • Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and half quantity of vinegar.


  • Beat the cream mixture nicely with the help of beater.
  • Keep adding vinegar slowly - slowly.
  • Beat till cream mixture becomes thick.


  • Once it becomes thick, keep it in the fridge.
  • Serve chilled as a dip with nachos or you can use it in tacos or burritos.


Note: You can store this sour cream in the fridge for a week.
