You could also wrap the vessel with a thick towel. Yogurt takes 6-8 hours to form. Transfer vessel to a refrigerator and eat out portions as you need.

The best natural homemade probiotic foods is yogurt (curd) or dahi, as it is known, is prepared in most households in the Indian subcontinent. It is home made, natural, has no preservatives and comes loaded with healthy probiotic bacteria. Why spend precious money for fancy and processed supermarket or branded yogurt?

How To Make Yogurt At Home

Ideally use organic cow milk to make your yogurt.

Steps

  • Bring 1/2 liter of fresh milk to a boil and let it cool down naturally till it becomes lukewarm.
  • Once the milk is warm, add a tablespoon or two of curd (from a previous batch) or fresh unflavoured yogurt to it. In case of very hot climates, one teaspoon is also enough.
  • If you don’t have homemade yogurt to begin with, then you can also put in a piece of bread to the milk to convert it to yogurt.
  • Let the milk rest outside for a few hours, covered with a lid.
  • Make sure the vessel is kept in a relatively warm place and is placed on a wooden surface or thick cloth. You could also wrap the vessel with a thick towel.
  • The other option for cold climates is to heat up an oven to around 40 to 50 degrees then shut it off. Place the vessel inside.

The yogurt takes from between six to eight hours to form. Ideally, prepare this at night so that it is ready by morning. Once the yogurt is ready, transfer the vessel to a refrigerator and eat out from portions as you need. If properly refrigerated, this yogurt can easily last for 3-4 days without getting spoilt.

Making yogurt is more of observation and skill. If it is very cold you may need to put in more yogurt to the milk or let it rest more in a warm place. If it is too hot, the yogurt may turn rancid fast. So keep experimenting and arrive at your best formula.

Good yogurt is well formed and completely bland. There should be no acidity when you eat it. Having this in small quantities is very helpful for acidity and digestion and also contains protein and calcium in a form which is easy to absorb by the body.

Why would you boil the milk? It is like killing the bacteria and then re-populating it.

There is a much simpler and error-proof method: buy kefir grains SCOBY (Symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) on eBay (https://goo.gl/FodCDV) and keep it in your fridge, then put it in your half-gallon or gallon sized jar of milk for a day or more to get the best natural kefir and be happy and healthy :)

Make sure you keep the grains in a fresh portion of milk in your fridge between the fermentation sessions.

Enjoy!
