"Hello Kurma, Iíve recently moved to Malaysia from India. I have a few queries regarding milk: Is it possible to make kheer and to set curd (yogurt) using the homogenized milk

Absolutely, yes!! click here for the curd (yogurt) recipe.
"If I make milk using milk powder (three teaspoons powder to a glass of
