Thick Yogurt

Hi. I had a bad experience in an Indian restaurant. I binned the Onion Baji starter in favor of a Chicken Murgh Chaat. It was recommended. They did not tell me it was hot and as I was going to follow with a king prawn vindaloo, that was too much capsican for me.

They brought to the table some thick yogurt which helped. I have never seen thick yogurt like a very thick cream. Can you buy this or is there some process to thicken it up.

Desmond, you can do either one.
Using pasteurized milk, heat it to 100 deg F, add a few tablespoons of active culture (yogurt bought listing it has active cultures, flavor, plain). Then mix and keep it warm overnight, in a cooler with hot water bottle, or an oven that stays around 90-100 deg F. Leave it longer if you want it more sour or thicker. Pour off any separated liquid for thicker.

Or take yogurt bought or made, drain it through a tea towel or butter muslin overnight, it will be thicker.

In the US you can buy greek yogurt, which is thicker than standard yogurt.
