I love yogurt specially fresh home made one. This is a very basic but long process. I love making my home-made yogurt which I learnt from my parents. My dad buys 3 kilos of raw milk from local farmer every Friday. Split that up between my sister in laws so everyone can make their own yogurt.
I will try to explain step by step
1- Buy 1 litre milk. We use full fat whole milk. You can choose any kind.
2- 1 full spoon of yogurt. I use of my favourite brand fage
3- Put your milk in saucepan bring to the boil and then turn off the heat
4- Let your milk cool down until room temperature
5- Take cup of milk and mix up with one spoon of yogurt together.
6- Mix this gently with your milk. Make sure the milk is at room temperature. I use wooden spoon to mix.
7- After you mix it up gently and thoroughly, cover the pot with a lid. Then wrap with kitchen towel or hand towel.
8- Leave in room temperature for at least 16 hours.
Ta-da! your yogurt is ready. If you want you can stop here and enjoy your yogurt or you can use cheesecloths or muslin to start draining your yogurt to get rid of excess water. You will have creamy tick delicious yogurt.
Homemade yogurt tastes different compared to readymade one. Some people put one tea spoon of sugar or salt when they are cooking their milk to make it tastier. Based on your preference and taste bud you can try one of them.
Next time you don’t need to but yogurt to make your yogurt. You can simply use couple of spoon from your own yogurt to make the next one.
