  • 1 pint whole milk or 2% milk
  • 1 tbsp yogurt with live culture (store bought)


  • Bring milk to a boil. Using  a cooking thermomater, check whether the temperature reaches around  176-180 °F. This step is crucial as it will kill any unnecassary bacteria. Cool it down to 112-115’F. Set aside.
  • Remove 1/4 cup milk. Cool to room temperature and dissolve 1 tablespoon of yogurt without forming lumps.
  • Gently mix the yogurt mixture into the boiled milk. Pour into a glass jar or any container.
  • Store it at room temperature to ferment.
  • If living in a cold country, pre-heat the oven to 190F for 15-20minutes. Switch off the oven. Place the container over a baking tray and cover with a towel. The towel helps to retain the heat for a longer time. Place inside the oven and close the door. Let it ferment overnight.
  • Once set, transfer the container to fridge until ready to use.
