Hung Curd Sandwich Recipe

Hung curd sandwich is a quick, easy, and filling breakfast recipe. This delicious cold sandwich is loaded with healthy goodness of vegetables and protein rich curd. The stuffing of the sandwich is made using colorful veggies , mixed with spiced yogurt/ thick curd. As this sandwich is not grilled or heated , it is a cold sandwich and perfect for Summers.

The Hung Curd sandwich remain fresh for 3-4 hours and can be packed in kids lunch box or served as an after school snack. As it is low in calories, it can be be enjoyed by all age groups. Involve your kids in making this no-cook recipe for the added fun. Serve the sandwich plain or with some juice or milk shake. I have served the sandwich with Strawberry milkshake. These hung curd sandwich can also be served as starters for kids play date, birthday, and summer parties.

I always prefer using hung curd over mayonnaise in my recipes. I have made the hung curd at home, which is very easy. But you may use store bought yogurt instead. Feel free to add any veggies of your choice in the stuffing. I have used carrots, onions, cucumber and sweet corn in this recipes, all the veggies except sweet corn are raw. I have steamed the corn and have kept the seasonings simple and just added crushed black pepper and salt to taste. You may use Italian herbs, chili flakes or any other seasonings of your choice. You may add a little powdered sugar to the hung curd if you feel it is sour. I did not add . Always use fresh curd which is not very sour in taste. The sandwich can be made using brown bread or multi-grain bread.

I had made these hung curd sandwiches as starters for my son's birthday party and they were a big hit among kids. If you have hung curd and chopped veggies ready at hand, making this sandwich is a breeze. Stay tuned for more kid friendly recipes, as i will be sharing the recipes of all the dishes i served at the party :)

Video Recipe of Hung Curd Sandwich

Preparation time: 10 minutes ( does not include the time for making hung curd)
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Servings : 6

  • 1 cup thick curd
  • 6 bread slices
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 onion 
  • 1/4 cup sweet corn kernels
  • 1 cucumber finely chopped (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  1. To make the hung curd, line a colander with a muslin cloth or any clean cotton kitchen towel. Keep another bowl below the colander to collect the whey. Now pour the curd over this cloth. Gather the sides of the kitchen towel and tie a knot. Leave it hanging over the kitchen sink for 2-3 hours or till all the water drains out. If the temperature is very hot, keep the setup (curd tied in the cheese cloth in a colander and a bowl below it to collect the whey) in the refrigerator so that the curd does not turn sour. 

2. Now once the hung curd is ready, we can prepare the veggies for the stuffing. Wash peel and grate the carrots, peel and finely chop the onions, peel and chop the cucumber, steam the sweet corn kernels for 4-5 minutes ( i have done it in a microwave), crush the black pepper.

3. Remove the brown edges of the bread slice using knife and cut each bread into two parts. I have kept rectangular pieces, you may slice the bread diagonally to make triangular sandwiches.

4. In a large mixing bowl take the hing curd and add all the veggies. ( Squeeze as much water as you can from the chopped cucumber before adding it to the hung curd) . Blend  the veggies well with the hung curd. Now add the crushed black pepper and salt to taste. Mix well. Our stuffing is ready.

5. Place half of the prepared bread slices over a board or plate and spread enough stuffing over each of them. Cover each of the slice with another bread slice, press a bit and you are done. Healthy and delicious hung curd sandwiches are ready to serve !


Recipe Notes :

  • Brown bread or multi-grain bread may also be used to make hung curd sandwich.
  • If you do not have time to make hung curd, you may use store bought yogurt to make the sandwich.
  • Feel free to use veggies of your choice in the stuffing.
  • I have kept the seasonings simple and just added crushed black pepper and salt to taste. You may use Italian herbs, chili flakes or any other seasonings of your choice. 
  • Always use fresh curd which is not very sour in taste. You may add a little powdered sugar to the hung curd if you feel it is sour.
  • This is a cold sandwich so it is not grilled, but if you wish you may toast the bread slice and then fill the stuffing.
