  8. I am a non indian and unclear what you mean when you say “curd” and also what is a Kadai? Can I use a regular frying pan? Thank you

    • Hi TJ,

      As a non-Indian, showing interest in Indian recipes is great. Kadai is a frying pan. Normally we use thick bottomed frying pan so that it will retain heat. Curd is sold in other countries as “Yogurt”.
