Greek yoghurt, yum-a-dum! But here’s the thing, it’s close to impossible to find a pot of greek yoghurt here in Bangalore, and if you do happen to find it, the price is exorbitant (I rather not eat). Having said that, I do love my yoghurt and it does do wonders to heal and soothe your stomach. Light yet creamy, I like to have greek yoghurt as a dip, muesli mix or just in its natural form. So what does a girl do when she’s having cravings? Figure out my own version of it.
I’m pretty sure this is not the traditional way to make greek yoghurt, but I can cross-my-heart and tell you it tastes just as good. And it’s as easy as 1-2-3.
Follow instructions to the T:
– Take a pot of set curd (I like Nestle’s A+)
– Take a sieve, line it with muslin cloth and empty the whole pot onto this. Gently wrap the curd and I put my mortar on it to fasten the draining. Don’t forget to have a bowl under.
– I let it stand for 1-2 hrs. This allows most of the water to be drained out of the curd, leaving back a rich, creamy yoghurt.
– Eat as you like. I topped mine with a drizzle of honey and some almonds.
