Did you know Making Yogurt in Clay Takes Just 10 minutes?

Have you ever tried making yogurt at home? If yes, you must be aware of all the challenges of making it thick and delicious – similar to the store bought one. If you don’t know the right way of making, it may turn out runny or sour and the excess water needs straining which also strains out the liquid probiotics.

Once you learn how to make it properly, there is no reason you won’t make it regularly. After all, it’s so delicious and healthy – with so many health benefits for people of all age groups. But its only healthy when it is free from harmful additives like gelatin (glue made from animal bones), pectin (a bio-polymer acid, lab-made ingredient), etc.

All these challenges is the reason you must start making yogurt in clay.

Making Yogurt in Clay

To make this delicious food in the healthiest way, you must start making yogurt in clay — all you need is milk, yogurt culture (leftovers from the previous batch) and most importantly – a pure clay pot.

Pure clay is a 100% tested and certified non-toxic material so no metal toxins leach into yogurt. The pot made from this material is naturally semi-porous or breathable. So no excess water stays in the yogurt as the micro-pores slowly draw out water (& just the water, leaving the liquid probiotics intact) making your yogurt thicker and silkier, naturally!

Here are three simple steps to making yogurt in a pure clay pot:

  1. Heat the milk to just before boiling point (till small bubbles form on the surface). Turn stove off, and open lid and let it cool down for 30 mins or so, till you can put your little finger and hold it there for 5 secs. Now the milk is ready for the culture. (this process takes about 2 minutes hands-on-time)
  2. Add yogurt culture. (two minute hands-on time)
  3. Set in the oven with lid on and oven light on.  (one minute hands-on time)

That’s a total of less than 10 minutes!

Let it incubate for 6-8 hours and the yogurt is ready. The yogurt left in the pot gets thicker and thicker over time. Besides being thicker and creamier, making yogurt in clay without a doubt makes it healthier because the food has no interaction with metals or chemicals from the pot. And does not experience nutritional loss while cooking or heating. Also, no additives are used like in the store bought yogurt – saves you from harmful effects of artificial additives and sugars.

Next time when you want to make thick and delicious yogurt, consider making yogurt in clay. Because the process is so simple there is no reason you shouldn’t get your own pure clay pot and try this healthy food. Head over to MEC Store and order a yogurt maker today!

I have done B.Tech in Information Technology but I decided not to be a Software Engineer as my qualification would have me be because it was all such a cliché. I love to live like a free spirit and do whatever I feel like doing at any moment. I have tried to work in multiple fields but none of them was interesting enough to keep me tied-up for too long. I am a typical Freelancer. I know I am destined to achieve greatness but when and how, I don't know yet.
