Recipe by Indian Chef

Bagara Dahi is a yum way to prepare yogurt. It tastes so good that you can eat it on its own! For those of you who prefer not to labor over a hot stove, try this with some steamed basmati rice and enjoy a healthy, nutritious meal. It's a staple at our home especially during summer as curd is known for its cooling character.
