Home made Yoghurt

Yoghurt is part of our daily diet in most indian homes. And is used very well in other international cuisines,desserts etc too. Nothing can beat the taste and freshness if Homemade and it wil save you money too.

Its so simple and here is how it can be made

250mL Milk( I used 2% fat milk - 1% or whole fat can also be used)
2-3 spoons of yoghurt from previous batch or store bought(At room temperature)

Preheat the Oven to 180F.
Heat Milk until boiling point on the Stove.
Allow it to cool to room temperature( say 100F).
Once the milk has cooled down(will generally take 10 mins -15 mins or even more),add the yoghurt to this and mix well untill blended uniformly.
Switch off the oven(IMP.)
Keep this inside the oven for about 4-5 hours. The longer you leave it in ,the sourer it will turn.
Once,the yoghurt is done refrigerate it for 1 hour or so before consuming it.
And home made yoghurt is ready!

Notes.: Remember to switch off the oven before putting in the yoghurt.
I have used the oven since the normal room temperatures are low for me. If temperature outside is about 30C or more then you need not use oven to set the yoghurt.

I used plastic containers for this. Any kind can be used.
