I have eaten homemade yogurt everyday as a kid. I am sure a lot of you have. By the time I was a teenager I was a pro myself. But moving to the US I was disappointed that nobody made their own yogurt and the store bought was not the same.So here is the recipe. Make sure you buy the starter as a plain yogurt with live active cultures. A couple of times and it will be the Indian curd. I took the picture from as it is self-explanatory.

I miss the home made yogurt. But you have to be careful - it can easily turn sour if you dont use the right technique !

Yes the milk has to be at an optimum temperature. If you can dip your finger and feel comfortable then it is too cold.

this might sound silly but what is a starter? - sorry I'm a total novice :)
