Nothing is better than a good thick yoghurt as a side dish to Persian Khoresht and polo rice. When making yoghurt add a good quantity of dried milk powder, I add enough to double the consistency of the milk, for example if I am using 1 litre of milk, I add enough dried milk powder to make a litre of milk.

A more traditional way of getting thick yoghurt it to strain it through a thin cheesecloth overnight, but an alternative to this is to place a clean toweling cloth on the top of freshly made yoghurt, and place in refrigerator overnight. The cloth will absorb excess liquid making the yoghurt a much thicker consistency.
