Quick & Easy Home-made Yogurt

I used to think that making yogurt (dahi) at home is very time consuming and takes a lot of effort. However, that's not the case at all. It's very simple, economical and takes no time at all. All you need for making home-made yogurt is milk and 2 tablespoon of yogurt.

The steps to making home-made yogurt are:
  1. Boil milk on microwave or stove. I usually do this in the microwave in a glass bowl so that it goes from microwave to fridge to the dinner table.
  2. Let the milk cool down so that it's warm. During winter, don't let it cool down too much.
  3. Add 2 tablespoon of yogurt which acts as a culture.
  4. Cover it with a lid. Put it in such a place so that it does not get moved or knocked over. If it's winter, you can also put a cloth over it.
  5. Let it sit for more 8-12 hours, and that's it.

I usually boil the milk while I am eating dinner or after dinner. Let the milk cool down a bit, and then add culture to it. Set is aside for the whole night. Next day, home made yogurt is ready!
