  • Instant Pot


  • 8 Cups Milk
  • ¼ Cup Yogurt


  • Sterilize the inner pot of instant pot with boiling water and vinegar.
  • Dry and put it back in the instant pot.
  • Add 8 cups of milk.
  • Turn on the instant pot.
  • Press yogurt button
  • Select boil
  • Let yogurt come to almost 180F
  • General rule of thumb is it happens right after first boil.
  • Then let it cool down to 110-115F
  • Add yogurt
  • Mix well
  • Remove the Seal band from your instant pot lid
  • Close the lid
  • Keep it on vent
  • Press yogurt button again
  • This time when the option “low” blinks select that
  • Then select either 18 or 24 hours
  • The longer it incubates the better.
  • Or you can custom select your temperature and incubate it for 9 hours.
  • After 18-24 hours yogurt looks perfectly thick no need to strain excess water.
  • But after 9 hours my yogurt looks runny so I take a bowl put a sieve on top pour all the yogurt in it close it with lid and let it sit in refrigerator for couple of hours and it thickens.
  • That’s how you make Greek yogurt.
  • When the yogurt reaches its perfect consistency first thing I do is to freeze ½ a cup as a starter for next time.
  • Then we make breakfast bowls, smoothie bowls, flavored yogurt, kadhi pakora, Gyro Sauce, karahi, chicken tikka masala, biryani and what not.
