Curd cheese or Bond’e is given to the infant during Confinement period.Usually given after/on 12th day of babys birth.I learnt it from my kodava friend. Thanks Madrira Rashmi Lishan for sharing this with me.
This is prepared using curdled milk.It is believed that, this will help baby gain weight.
- 1/2 ltr milk
- 1 tspn of lemon juice
Boil the milk to reach to three-fourth of its quantity. Squeeze lemon juice to the boiled milk ,
Drain out all the water and hang it overnight in a muslin cloth ( to remove excess water)
Make tiny balls of this the next day morning. Take a pinch of it using your thumb and index finger and feed it to your baby.
