Sour Cream

Here’s a simple recipe for homemade sour cream using hung curd, Gusto’s lime juice, and salt:


  • 1 cup hung curd (strained yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon Gusto’s lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)


  1. Start by preparing the hung curd. To do this, line a fine mesh sieve or colander with cheesecloth or a clean kitchen towel. Place the sieve over a bowl to catch any liquid that drains out.
  2. Spoon the yogurt into the lined sieve or colander.
  3. Allow the yogurt to drain for at least 2-3 hours, or preferably overnight in the refrigerator. The longer it drains, the thicker the resulting sour cream will be.
  4. Once the yogurt has drained and thickened to your desired consistency, transfer it to a mixing bowl.
  5. Add Gusto’s lime juice and salt to the hung curd.
  6. Stir well to combine all the ingredients thoroughly.
  7. Taste the sour cream and adjust the seasoning if necessary, adding more lime juice or salt according to your preference.
  8. Transfer the homemade sour cream to a clean container with a tight-fitting lid.
  9. Refrigerate the sour cream for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.
  10. Serve chilled sour cream as a topping for tacos, baked potatoes, nachos, or any other dish where you would typically use sour cream.

Enjoy your homemade sour cream made with hung curd, Gusto’s lime juice, and a touch of salt!
