11 Incredibly Delicious Recipes Which Use Sour Milk

Uses of sour milk
Sour milk has been used in recipes since ancient times. The peculiar 'sour' taste comes from acidification of the milk.
The natural, the better!
Raw sour milk should be used rather than the pasteurized milk gone sour. When the milk is pasteurized, all the enzymes and probiotics are killed, whereas they are present in the raw milk. As the raw milk gets sour, it only means that the probiotics are using up the sweetness (lactose).
The best way to use sour milk in recipes is by following some ancient recipes. In those days, there were no refrigerators to preserve milk and hence sour milk was preferably used. The milk gets sour when there is natural bacterial fermentation or it can be made by adding an acid. The natural acids can be added through lemon juice or vinegar. It is advised to not drink sour milk as it may cause bacterial poisoning. However, sour milk can be used in cooking, as heat will get rid of the harmful bacteria.

Sour milk can be used in several delicacies. It can be used as a substitute for buttermilk or sour cream, which will keep the taste and creamy flavor intact. It can mainly be used in bread and dessert recipes. It being acidic in nature, reacts with the baking soda and makes the cakes and bread, fluffy. Here are some recipes that you could make using sour milk.
