I have given the curd amount for only summer season should increase the amount during winter. We must add milk depending on how much it absorbs for the first time. For this you must reserve some milk to make up at the end. The milk quantity differs than the given instructions in this recipe. I have added water to rice according to my rice quality you can check out your's when adding water because we want rice to mash well.
