King curd or Juju Dhau from Bhaktapur Nepal
What is King Curd or Juju Dhau
It’s a Newari curd(yogurt) made from buffalo milk and traditionally made by heating the curd cultures in rice husks. Today the curd is also flavored with Nepalese honey. It gets its name “royal curd” due to its exquisite taste that was said to once please the king.
My tasting of Royal King Curd
It certainly has a more cheesy flavor than regular curd and therefore richer. The color is also a little more yellow. The honey had a very mild taste in comparison. Either way it is certainly different from regular curd.
If you are visiting Bhaktapur it’s certainly worth trying as it holds a certain claim to fame to have eaten it!
