Curd cheese

Is quark cheese the same as curd cheese? If not, what can I use instead of curd cheese( I cannot seem to find any)

Quark cheese is more like cream cheese or yogurt. Not like curd cheese. What are you trying to make? That would help to know what you could use as a substitute.

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!!

I agreed with Cliveb - that seems to be a good subsitution.

Curd cheese is more like cottage cheese. If you can't get cottage cheese, try ricotta.

Try the Quark. It would likely work well for you.
