This is a perfect meal for Breakfast for all its goodness and flavors it provides. Oats combined with curd and mild seasoning over makes this dish a bliss to the palate. Curd or yogurt is a very popular dairy product produced by bacterial fermentation of milk. The bacteria used to make yoghurt are known as “yoghurt cultures”. Fermentation of lactose by these bacteria produces lactic acid, which acts on milk protein to give yoghurt its texture and its characteristic tang. Lassi is another popular yoghurt based beverage originally from the Indian subcontinent that is usually slightly salty or sweet. Lassi is a staple of Punjab and is also available in different flavors.

Curd plays a vital role in every household kitchen. There are three types of yogurt: regular (whole milk), low-fat and skim. Low-fat and skim yogurt are good for people who are on a cholesterol lowering diet or just simply watching their weights. This type of yoghurt does not raise blood cholesterol levels. Curd is a fresh dairy product that must be stored in the refrigerator. It is known and consumed in almost all parts of the world.

Mediterranean Countries use a lot of yoghurt in their cuisine. Eating curd everyday is very good for the health and supplements their protein, calcium and vitamins. It is not just a delicious snack with fruits on the bottom, it has great health benefits. It is an excellent source of protein, calcium, riboflavin and vitamin B12. When curd is compared to milk, curd contains more calcium and protein because of the added cultures in the yogurt.

Like most other ingredients, curd has created a niche in Indian cuisine and is added to varied recipes to make the dish exotic, unique, delectable and flavourful. It is widely used in south Indian cuisine and has created recipes that are par excellence and mouth-watering. Below listed are some of the fantastic and delectable dishes made from this humble and fresh milky white, sweet and sour ingredient commonly known as yogurt, curd, perugu etc:

One Horlicks Oats commercial per month among all of your great Indian cooking videos would be fine, but this is ridiculous. Why even have a channel if literally every single video is literally nothing but a feature-length ad for a sponsor? I'm no
