Full Cream Milk
Put one full cup of full cream milk in a heavy bottomed vessel.
Full Cream Milk Powder
This step is optional! You can add upto 2 tbsp of milk powder to your milk to make it thicker and creamier. If you want it light, you can completely skip this step or add less.
Give your mixture a good stir. Make sure that the milk powder has completely dissolved in the milk with no lumps.
Full Cream Milk
Brought to you from the heart of Malabar, the Keralan Prawn Dish is a well seasoned curry cooked primarily in a coconut curry along with the richness of Indian Spices. This curry is very rich in flavours and goes well with steamed white rice.
Boil the milk on a medium flame, ensuring that you stir occasionally.
Once the milk comes to a boil, simmer it for 2 mins. This helps the curd (yogurt) to get creamier.
Now turn off the flame of the stove and leave it there to cool slightly. I'd estimate 5 mins.
Transfer the milk to another vessel where you'd want your curd to set. You can use the same vessel if you'd like! The vessel can be of any material i.e. steel, ceremic, clay etc. I like to use clay.
Now stir in 1/2 (half) teaspoon of left over yogurt to the lukewarm milk.
Time to cover and leave the curd in a warm place to set. An oven is often a good place to leave your yogurt to set. Of course, do not turn the oven on!
After about 8 hours, your milk would be all set and ready to eat!
If you're after thick & creamy curd, refrigerate the yogurt for 2 hours before serving.
