Be very careful as the caramel gets burn very quickly. If it becomes too much brown then milk will get curdled.
You can make more caramel by adding more sugar if you want more color and flavor.
Add 1/4th cup of hot milk (which we were boiling) into the caramel, mix well.
Now add this caramel milk in the main milk, mix well and again start boiling.

Add the remaining sugar into the milk, mix well and boil for another 10 - 15 minutes on medium high flame.
Then turn off the flame and keep aside the milk until it becomes warm (before adding the curd, milk should be easily touchable).
In a bowl beat the thick yogurt very well.
Add half cup of warm milk into the beaten yogurt. Mix well with a whisk.

Now add this yogurt mixture into the remaining milk, mix well for 1 minute with the whisk.
Pour the milk in bowls or clay pots.
Cover them with lid or foil and place them in any warm place like kitchen cabinet or inside oven for 5-7 hours.
If the weather is cold, then it will take more time to set.
Sometimes in winter season I place the bowls in oven and then preheat the oven on 350 F for only 5-7 minutes. Next turn off the oven and keep them there for 5-7 hours.
The yogurt will set perfectly.

Put the bowls in fridge for few hours then serve.
Let me tell you another tip (totally optional) here. If you are not sure whether the yogurt will become thick or not, then grind half of any flavorless biscuit to a fine powder.
Then add this (1 Teaspoon) powder to the caramel milk, mix well and that to the main milk mixture.
Ground biscuit will absorb the extra moisture from yogurt and it will came out thick.
But do not add too much powder otherwise the texture of yogurt will become grainy.
