Greek Yoghurt- My Way


easy greek yoghurt_zps77cy7jhfGreek 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.

  1. So delicious, I want some. Regular yogurt and Greek yogurt are made in the same way. The only difference is that regular yogurt has whey whereas the Greek yogurt is strained through a cheesecloth to remove the whey, making it thicker and creamier. You are on the right track.

  2. Wow, that sounds really easy, NAMI! Which reminds me that I haven't replied to your e-mail yet… How are you, otherwise? Lots of love from Bombay to Bangalore. :-*
