Homemade Plain Greek Yogurt
Greek Yogurt is thick creamy curd simple to make at home.
The numerous uses of Greek Yogurt range from a spread to a dip, in baking to make smoothies.
Sujata’s place is teaming with such delicious salads, and latest one that I am drooling over is this kadhi with drumstick leaves. Wish she lived next door then I do not do anything just get the food from next door.
I would have loved to do Levantine Cuisine when Apeksha is here for she loves the cuisine. Apeksha and her love for the Levantine Cuisine has had me trying out
- Vegetarian Shawarma
- Falafel Wraps
- Matbucha a Salad
- Baharat, A Spice Powder
- Laffa Bread
- Vegan Lebanese Chickpea Stew
Since she will be here Wednesday I choose the simplest of the dishes, Greek Yogurt, the very basic and will build on it depending on what she wants.
Greek yogurt you can buy in the stores but it is simple to make at home. Greek yogurt is a dairy product where the whey is strained from the yogurt or curd. The straining drains out the excess water and lactose too but the extra minerals are also leached out. Hence use the leftover liquid the whey can be used to make smoothies or knead your chapatti dough with it.
To make Greek yogurt you can start with readymade yogurt but I prefer to make my own curds or yogurt. For most Indians making curds or yogurt is common place everyday occurrence but some like my friend Mabel who find it difficult to make curds here is how you make it.
Psst this is the same think we use to make Shrikhand and we call it Chakka the only difference is we do not strain the curds in the refrigerator.
