Smoothies: Blend curd with your favorite fruits, such as berries, bananas, or mangoes, along with some honey or maple syrup for sweetness. Add a handful of spinach or kale for extra nutrition, and blend until smooth for a creamy and nutritious smoothie. 

Marinades and Dressings: Use curd as a base for marinades and salad dressings. Mix it with herbs, spices, garlic, and lemon juice to create a flavorful marinade for chicken, fish, or tofu. You can also thin it out with a little water or olive oil to make a creamy salad dressing for your favorite salads. 

Raita: Raita is a traditional Indian side dish made with curd, chopped vegetables, and spices. Mix curd with diced cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, and grated carrots, and season with salt, cumin powder, and chopped cilantro. Serve raita as a refreshing accompaniment to spicy Indian dishes or as a dip with grilled meats or flatbreads. 

Curd Rice: Curd rice is a popular South Indian dish made with cooked rice mixed with seasoned curd. Mix cooked rice with whisked curd, and season with mustard seeds, curry leaves, green chilies, grated ginger, and salt. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve chilled for a simple and comforting meal. 

Curd-based Dips: Use curd as a base for creamy dips and sauces. Mix curd with minced garlic, lemon juice, chopped herbs (such as dill, parsley, or chives), and a pinch of salt to make a flavorful dip for raw vegetables, crackers, or chips. You can also add a dash of hot sauce or paprika for a spicy kick.
