  3. After a min, turn off the heat and let it rest for 15 mins.
  4. Take a muslin cloth and transfer this mixture to it.
  5. Strain it completely and hang it on sink tap for an hour.

  7. Your spread is ready to serve!


  • Use this whey to knead dough, which will make flatbreads softer.
  • For more solid texture, keep it in refrigerator for a few hours once it is drained completely.
