Method:
Heat the milk until just warm; when you start seeing small bubbles around the side.
Stir, if you see steam rising, leave it for a while until warm to touch. Mix in the starter yogurt, close and leave to set in a warm place for 6-8hrs.


makanholic

When do you off the fire?

How many subsequent batches can I make from the starter?

Sorry to ask stupid questions. see stars

Thanks Gina.

Hi Nora

There's no such thing as stupid questions. I'm only happy to enlighten you. grin

When do you off the fire?
Once you see the bubbles start to form, turn off the fire.

How many subsequent batches can I make from the starter?
You can make abt 3 batches from the initial starter. However I would suggest that you make the second batch using the yogurt you made as starter to test whether it can set. If it does, then make the subsequent yogurt batches from this. Don't waste the first starter, make lassi or eat it plain.

Hi Rebacca

It's called tairu but you can just ask for yogurt. It's usually kept in the fridge and it's thick, not watery.

Thanks for the recipe. Can I use a thermos flask instead?

NOTE:
I usually put the yogurt container in a thermal pot which is sold in Mustafa in varies sizes.


By the way, if I put in a thermos flask, do I screw the cover tightly or just leave it loose? see stars

Yes, Nora, you can and close it tight as you want to maintain the temperature as long as possible. Once it set, put the yogurt in the fridge or else, it will turn too sour.

PS: Wipe the water that has condensed on the lid before placing in the
fridge. If you want the yogurt custard-like, don't stir once it set; just
scoop out the amt you want.

Ok, will report to you tomorrow, he he he...

By the way, can you share the method of making yogurt ice cream?

May

Why don't you try making it "au naturale" before you decide to spend money to buy one. That's what I'm trying to do (spend less on toys) grin

Glad you like it Nora.
To cut down the sour taste, lessen the time you leave it to ferment & then refrigerate immediately. I'm have now made the yogurt wt skim milk powder instead of full cream milk powder. Will update you on the outcome tomorrow.

Oops! Sorry girls I didn't read this topic! Smile

glad for you nora!!!

May May, I bought mine from NewLife. I make the ice cream myself by putting in more milk powder (i make it wholly from milk powder actually, and buy the starter from NewLife Ss2) so that the ice cream is creamier. I then add in gelatine, sugar and BERRIES and maaaaaaaan. keep it stirring and you'll make yourself a real treat!

I'll post up the Yoghurt ice cream recipe in a while k?

Full cream milk+skim milk powder
Result:
-need longer time to set
- not as thick as the original
- slightly sweet tasting

Hi makanholic,

my mum ever tried doing with anlene milk (we were hoping for more calcium) but it just didn't set.. So she uses full cream milk now... I wonder what the reason could be...

I have done it with Anlene milk powder and it set. I made the milk very thick and got thick creamy yogurt. I did it using tupperware container wrapped in a towel until set....about 4 hours.

How much powdered milk did you use, Chip?
4 hrs, that's pretty fast.
I used to make yogurt with powdered milk only but I noticed I needed to use a lot of milk powder to get the thickness I wanted. That's why I switch to making this way. I found it was cheaper too.

Halimah,
I have tried making yogurt using only skim milk powder a long time ago. it set but was watery. Maybe it has something to do with the fat contain.

Hi makanholic,

I used 1 cup milk powder to 2 cups lukewarm water. My yogurt is very thick, almost the consistency of sour cream. Yes, my yogurt always sets in about 4 hours. I wrap my container in a towel and place it next to my thermo boiler.

I am surprised you find using fresh milk cheaper 'cos in Malaysia I find it cost almost twice as much as using milk powder.

While I have not tested using only skimmed milk powder I have tried both full cream and low fat milk powders, sometimes I add skimmed milk powder; instant and non instant and they all set but the full cream ones are thicker and creamer.

Most product in Spore are quite expensive. The Fernleaf Full Cream milk powder i use cost S$21.50 while the Paul's 1 litre milk cost abt S$1.70 from which i can make yogurt twice. The milk powder I usually use to make beverage as they prefer tea/milo with this than condensed milk.

Just wondering - if we make this at night, and leave it out there overnight. Will it turn bad by the next morning (say 8 hours' time)?
