I've seen the phrase "Curd Cheese" in many Indian recipes. If that is your case, you probably need to use yoghurt cheese. ( yoghurt = curds).
To make simple yoghurt/curd cheese, empty the contents of a whole carton of yoghurt ( Natural, full-cream yoghurt - that ghastly low-fat stuff doesn't work!!) into a cheesecloth and let it "hang" overnight. The curds will thicken and the whey will drain off. Don't throw out the whey; you can use it to cook your Basmati rice!!
