Milk and Lemon Juice
« on: December 26, 2018, 05:45:39 PM »
I hare the way it looks curdled. I've seen ways to raise its pH but wonder if it would affect the taste since the bite is part of the reason for adding it.

Thoughts?

the only time I put lemon juice in milk is if I don't have any buttermilk... so maybe just use buttermilk?

Can you post the recipe?

You can use cream instead-- the higher fat content will be less likely to curdle. Also, be very careful with heat. But-- dairy + acid is tough unless you stabilize the dairy with something like a roux-- which will not taste authentic for butter chicken.

Both of these are excellent recipes, and likewise, I recommend going with their techniques.

Scald thr milk then beat the lemon juice in a bit at a time. I used the immersion blender. Incredible cod in dill, cream and lemon sauce.
