Hello Mala thangi!

I am from Saraswathipuram, Mysore! Thank you very much for your great blog, I really liked going through your recipes, and I am also thrilled that you are Mysorean! I now live in Chicago.

If you have the time, I have two questions that you could possibly answer:

1) There is a mosaru (yogurt) bendekayi with vagarane (I don't know how to say it in English), could you please post how to make it?
2) The yogurt here tastes different, should I get mosaru from Mysore and add it to the milk here? My friend's wife is coming back from Mysore next week so I can get mosaru; also if I need to do that, what kind of milk should I use to make the mosaru (what percent fat milk)?

Thanks!
