It was extremely frustrating for me, until I decided that enough was enough. I was determined to find a way to either make it myself or find a substitute for it. After a lot of reading up and digging through quite a lot of material, I found out that you can easily mix up a concoction that you can use when a recipe calls for sour cream. All you need is some Fresh Cream – I always used Amul Fresh Cream and thick curds (dahi) – this you can either use homemade dahi or Amul Masti Dahi – a brand I preferred to use. I’m pretty sure you could use any other brand available with the same results.
200g fresh cream
1 heaped tbsp thick curds
A pinch of salt
Beat the cream till slightly thicker and still creamy.
Add the curds and the salt and mix well, till everything is well incorporated.
Use as needed.
And that’s it! How easy is that?
I hope you find this little snippet helpful. I sure did.
