Make Greek Yogurt and Sour Cream at home! Very Easy :-)

Did you know that Greek Yogurt is basically strained yogurt that's made from full-cream milk? So, all you have to do is place a strainer on top of a container that fits in exactly, pour the yogurt over, cover it and let it sit overnight in the fridge. The next morning, you'll have THICK, CREAMY yogurt on top of the strainer and all the water drained into the container. Now, this is your Greek Yogurt. Go ahead and use it in all dishes that uses Greek Yogurt - like Shrikhand, Tzatziki, etc.

To get Sour Cream, all you need is to squeeze some lemon juice into the thick Greek yogurt and whisk it well together. Voila! Your Sour cream is now ready to use in burritos, chalupas and more!

Some pictures now :-)
