Home made Perugu/Curd/Dahi/Yogurt

We prefer home made curd to store bought yogurt. I always thought yogurt making is a very complicated process and that I could never master it but its not once u know at which temperature u need to add the culture, its a 1,2,3,4 process. I always boil my milk twice (coz thats how mom and grandmom do) and always use whole milk ('coz thats how S likes it.)

Step 1: Boil milk in a clean vessel till a layer is formed on top of the milk and keep aside till it cools down. (Boil on medium-low flame)

Step 2: Boil milk again and keep it aside till it is lukewarm, pour in a vessel and add 1 tsp of previously made curd or if using store bought yogurt use 2 tsps instead and mix.

Step 3: Place covered in the oven or some place warm overnight undisturbed.

Step 4: Take out, remove the cover and jsut move the vessel to see if the curd is done if not let it stay for few more hrs(donot disturb it). Serve chilled or at room temp. Enjoy!!!
