Indian Recipes, from the old to the new
Yogurt, or dahi, is an important ingredient in Indian cuisine. Dahi is Indian yogurt, and is similar in thickness to greek yogurt.
It makes an excellent accompaniment to many dishes, often as a cooling counter-flavor to spicy dishes. Yogurt goes well with rice, dal, and many vegetables.
It is easy to make a quick meal out of stuffed paratha and a simple yogurt dip. Raitas are yogurt with some spice or vegetable added.
Yogurt also makes a great base for a marinade often used for tandoori-style dishes. You can easily make yogurt at home with milk and a little bit of yogurt as a starter.
