Peanut Curd is a vegan curd made using peanuts. It is tasty and ideal to use regularly.

Many people are adopting veganism, it is refraining from eating or using any animal product. It is a kind of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal derived ingredients.  Alternative products used by vegans are almond milk, soy milk, cashew milk, peanut and rice milk. Today, more and more people are adopting vegan diet.

I am neither a vegan nor have changed myself into one. When I saw this peanut curd posted by friend Poornima, I wanted to try it. It was the first time I heard about it and I really wanted to see how it tasted.

Peanut curd is different in taste but surprisingly looks like our own kind. It has the nutty taste in it and those who like peanuts will surely like it.

It involves the soaking, grinding, boiling, sieving and setting of curd. Let us look into it in depth.

    Never tried peanut curd.. but not a bad idea for those following a vegan diet. I tried the red chilli method and it didn’t work for me.
