I have tried the first recipe (peanut and chilli) and it works really well. However, since I was very doubtful of my skills in setting the curd, I added 1 teaspoon of lemon juice along with the broken chilli, and it set perfectly. 😀 Anyway I think it would have been set so even if I didn’t add lemon juice. I prefer broken chilli method more than the chilli crown method. I think the former works better. 😁
Glad to know the broken chilli method works well for you!
Same method i used and got great result.👌
Glad to know 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
