Yogurt on ekadasi

Hare Krsna. PAMHO

I've get confused when a devotee alerted me not to take yogurt on ekadasi

as the culture of the yogurt is unknown.  We are all aware that powdered milk is not allowed on ekadasi. 

As long as you consider, what do you think of taking yogurt on ekadasi?

      Main thing is You have to have some already made yogurt. 

      So You have to boil milk, cool it till it gets warm. Then add 2 table spoons of yogurt to a liter of milk and cover it nicely and keep for a night. In the morning do not shake it but keep safely in the fridge.

      When it gets cool it is ready for using.

    powdered milk may contain some starch; the same thing it may be with outside yogurt.

    Hare Krsna Mataji,

    Yogurt we avoid one whole month, the second month of chaturmaas, beginning (this year) from Sunday, 10th Aug. Other times, we can have curd, yogurt, raita, kadhi all through the year, including ekadasi.


    Your servant,



  • Yogurt; made at home is permissible. It will be safe to avoid packed yogurt
