How we picked brands for Dahi 

We picked brands that are most commonly and easily available across major cities. After several visits to local supermarkets and kiraana stores and online stores, it was clear that these are the most popular, and fast moving brands. However, dahi is more popularly consumed during warmer months in India and as the demand goes up, more brands enter the fray. We will be updating the article with more brands as the summer gets hotter!

How We Tested

Dahi is a milk-product and a lot depends on how it is ‘set’. Talking about appearances, a ‘well-set’ dahi is firm and not wobbly or jelly-like. It should have little or no whey and must have a pleasant, fresh aroma when you first open the pack. For texture, we were looking for factors such as smoothness, a non-grainy richness and absence of too much whey. For taste, factors such as a pleasing aftertaste and absence of sourness were considered. In addition to these, we also looked at the packaging quality, ease of opening, and how well a brand showcased the nutritional information and list of ingredients.

Most brands followed standardized packaging for their 400 gm packs – the size we reviewed. List of ingredients and FSSAI numbers were neatly labelled.

To check for crucial sensory factors like taste, odor and flavor, all 9 brands were taken through multiple rounds of taste-tests. These were blind-tasting sessions where sample were marked from 1 to 9. We used palate cleansers in between samples to refresh taste-buds.

Mishry Secret Sauce: Tastiest, Creamiest Dahi To Buy

Most people in India set dahi at home. Even after buying a packet from the market, most would try and use a spoon or two from the branded dahi to set dahi at home. This is what triggered us to conduct our Secret Sauce Test for dahi. We decided to set dahi, using a spoon each from all 9 brands as a starter. We used full-fat, organic milk for the process. Because the live culture in dahi gradually decreases, we use fresh samples to do conduct the Mishry Secret Sauce. (What’s Mishry Secret Sauce? Read more here…)
