In response to the article, “Skinny Dipping; A few Healthy Dip Ideas” I wrote about a three dip ideas with high nutritional value. Well, I encourage people to interact as they may find their information published and broadcast to the wider audience.

    Hi Linda,
    Yes hung curd is drained yogurt,and the method to do it would be to tie the yogurt in a muslin/ cheesecloth and let it drain the water.
