As I mentioned in my older posts, "Suzma" is quite popular in Uzbekistan, especially in hot summers! It is used for salads, beverages, for soup toppings, also served with vegetables. For making "Suzma", try to use "Qatiq" which is made of full fat milk - it will be thick and yummy! The taste of "Suzma" depends on how tasty is your "Qatiq", if it is sour, then your "Suzma" will also be sour. That's why it is important to have tasty and full fat "Qatiq", in this way, your "Suzma" will taste just like cream cheese! Spread it to bread, put some sun dried tomatoes, that were soaked in olive oil on top and try- it is irresistible!
1.5 liters of "Qatiq" (http://uzbekcooking.blogspot.com/2010/04/qatiq-natural-yogurt.html)
Salt to taste
Cheesecloth or cotton fabric
Finely mix half a tbsp or less salt with "Qatiq". Layer cotton fabric/cheesecloth over the strainer and pour all of the "Qatiq" on it.
Gather the edges and secure with rubber band. Hang over deep bowl and let it drain for 7-8 hours.
Spoon out all of the "Suzma" in to a glass jar and enjoy it!
