The Indian yogurt is different from the American or European yogurt. Indian yogurt is not slimy like the other yogurt and has a cheesy consistency. This is because of the low percentage of the slime producing bacteria Streptococcus cremoris and S.Lactis in the Indian Yogurt. Another difference is that the Indian yogurt culture can grow even at high temperature.

Giving children home made yogurt everyday has been a practice in ancient India giving good health to children and be immune from many diseases without being vaccinated. Adults ate regularly fermented rice and drank butter-milk either mango flavored or with lemon leaves (Sambaaram) was a good health approach preventing many diseases with modern people have.

Our own personal experience with children having eaten home-made Indian yogurt throughout their childhood had almost no pediatric visits and even if they developed fever or cold was only very mild and went away just by giving turmeric with honey.

In Indian traditional way of eating yogurt was the must eaten recipe and very interestingly it was eaten after the dessert. (Sure some researchers can find the role of yogurt eating after sweets and good dental health-(June 2013). Even now many South Indians do not know that leaving rice for yogurt after eating the sweet payasam (dessert) will prevent dental damage.

Again ancient Indian cultural tradition was against eating yogurt in the beginning of the meal. This was a clever way of avoiding the gastric hydrochloric acid form killing the healthy bacteria in the yogurt. By the time yogurt was eaten in the end of the meal, it paved a safe passage of healthy Lacto-bacillus in yogurt to colonize the gut leading to good health.

Ignoring scientific logic in ancient life style, lead to health problems for modern Indians. Our message is to convey everyone to eat more fermented rice and fermented yogurt for good health. Now modern research is proving old Indian life style habits, which ironically is ignored by most educated Indians.

The important difference in Indian yogurt culture has a mixed population of different bacteria. Whereas Yogurt sold in most countries are with one particular strain.

Best health is to eat home made yogurt with the mixed bacterial culture using unhomogenized organic milk, boiled and then when at room temperature adding the indian mixed bacterial culture.

Is butter milk and Mouru(in tamil) are the same?
When the yogurt from whole milk is fermented and churned, the butter floats on top. It is taken off and what is remaining is buttermilk (English) or Mooru (Tamil).

Commercial butter milk may not be prepared int he same way and give similar benefits.

What is the difference between yogurt,curd, lassi and buttermilk?
When the yogurt from whole milk is fermented and churned, the butter floats on top. It is taken off and what is remaining is buttermilk (English) or Mooru (Tamil).

The Indian curd has a mixed population of hundred different bacteria. Whereas Yogurt has only a few species of bacteria. Modern science says our gut has thousands of bacteria and so the curd is healthier than yogurt or any defined probiotics. see this link

Best health is to eat home made curd (dahi) with the mixed bacterial culture using unhomogenized organic milk, boiled and then when at room temperature adding the indian mixed bacterial culture.

The Indian curd is not slimy like the yogurt and has a cheesy consistency. This is because of the low percentage of the slime producing bacteria Streptococcus cremoris and S.Lactis in the Indian curd. Another difference is that the Indian curd bacteria can grow even at high temperature.

When the whole milk fermented curd is churned, the butter floats on top. It is taken off and what is remaining is buttermilk (English) or Mooru (Tamil).

Lassi is a flavored healthy drink made by adding a little salt and palm sugar to the buttermilk or curd. Mango lassi is another healthy drink.

Note: we use the word Indian yogurt instead of curd because many people understand these terms.
