 Ingredients Quantity
ALCO Cinnamon Powder 2 tsp
Whole milk 500 ml
Yogurt or Dahi 1 1/2 tsp


  1. Bring milk to a boil over a medium flame. Try and use an Instant Pot safe container to heat the milk. If not transfer to an Instant Pot safe container once the milk is boiled.
  2. Allow it to cool down till it reaches a temperature between 43 – 45°C. The milk should be slightly warmer than lukewarm.
  3. Remove the skin formed on top (malai). Add the yogurt starter and mix well.
  4. Add 1 cup water to the inner pot of Instant Pot and place a trivet. Place the milk vessel over the trivet and cover it with a lid. You can use aluminum foil if you don't have a lid. Close the lid of the Instant Pot.
  5. Turn ON the Instant Pot and choose the YOGURT function and set it to LOW. Set the timer on for 6 hours. Turn the pressure knob to SEALING.
  6. Remember to check at 5.5 hours to see if it is done.
  7. Once done, remove from the Instant Pot and transfer to the refrigerator. Dahi or yogurt tastes best after 1-2 hours of refrigeration.
  8. Sprinkle ALCO Cinnamon Powder over the yogurt.
