HOME MADE CURD * or yogurt
Recipe by Prashant Patel

Ingredients:
1 litre full cream milk
2.5 tbsp plain yogurt

Method:
1. use a blender to blend yogurt with milk till its all mixed evenly.
2. Pour this into an earthern pot, cover the pot.
3. Wrap the pot with a large towel and leave aside for 24 hours.
4. Preferably in a warm place like the kitchen.
5. By the next day, it will form into yogurt.
6. Remove from the pot and store it in a plastic container into the fridge.
7. Use it as per recipe or good on its own.


Tips by Mrs Patel(Prashant's wife):
1. Remove 1/4 cup of this batch you make and it can be use as your 'culture starter'. So you don't have to get plain yogurt from supermarkets.

2. To make a refreshing drink, add 2 tbsp of home made yogurt to 1 cup of water. Add your favourite fruits(mangoes or strawberries) and blend in a food processor.

3. Serve cold with ice..That's Lassi, home made!

4. Or serve it straight with fruits and a bit of maple syrup or honey.

yummy

I use my corningware pot..also can. As long as its glass, or earthern ware. if you want to try, just your recycled Nescafe jars. just divide into 2 jars if its too much for 1 jar.

no need to buy special pots. the one I saw he use was an Indian red earthern pot. which all the indian shops at Serangoon Road has!

Gina

If I use Nescafe jars, do I screw tight the cover or I just cover it loosely?

(Need to wait for the Nescafe in the office to finish before I can take the jar home. bawling tears )
