    Dear ,how did you made buttermilk for this recipe ? whether 3/4 cup curd and 1/4 cup water beat together and add?
    Seena Koshy (2017-02-07 18:14:20)
    Curd is not an ingredient for making butter milk, but milk and white vinegar or lemon juice. Mix 1 cup of Milk and 1 tbsp. of white vinegar or lemon juice and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes. After 10 minutes you will find the curdled milk. Whisk well and use it for your bakes. Happy Baking Saranya..
