#Milk powder - about 4 tablespoon each cup
#normal size drinking cup (1-2 cups depending on the quantity you wanted to make)
#thermos to maintain a consistent temperature
-Pour hot water in cup
-Put about 4 big tablespoon of milk powder into each cup. I like putting a lot of milk powder as I like my yogurt to have a thick consistency. You can adjust the number of scoop you put in.
-Once satisfied with the thickness, wait till the milk become warm. You can test by putting your finger in. If too hot then the yogurt starter bacteria will die.
- Put in the yogurt starter when the temperature of the milk is below 120°F(49°C), but don't let the milk cool below 90°F (32°C). 110°F (43°C) is the optimal temperature.
-Once warm put in about 1 tablespoon of yogurt starter into the milk.
-Pour all the mixture into thermos. Cap it and leave overnight for about 8 hours at room temperature. If you leave the yogurt outside too long, the yogurt may turn sour. Store the yogurt into the fridge once the yogurt is ready.
There might be some liquid pooling in the yogurt. Just pour away the water and consume the yogurt like normal. If you have fruits like strawberry or apple. Cut them into small slices and mix into the yogurt. Yogurt is a "cooling" type of food (according to my mum). If you tend to eat heaty food like curry, you can eat yogurt to balance out your diet. However please eat the yogurt in moderation.
Yogurt are versatile. Other than adding fruits into yogurt, you can make yogurt ice cream, yogurt shake and yogurt drink. I will expand this page if i try anything new with yogurt.
