is it a Potato Soup..? Love potatoes

but

I'm not a user of much dairy in cooking... no yoghurt, no cream, no butter...…… limited cheese...… it just doesn't agree with me... and I'm old enough to know what suits me.

Bulgarian salty yoghurt, water, salt, cucumbers, fresh dill and walnuts. Can be made into a drink too. Remove the walnuts and the dill and add some ice and you have a Bulgarian redneck cocktail that Mick Taylor is gonna kill ya for...mate.

Another BG drink I currently drink even now, with a cigarette, is more simplified and is only mineral water, salt, Bulgarian salty yoghurt and optional some caraway.

It's godlike. A drink for real gods.

Well they won't be called Indians if they don't straight copy someone.

It's basically the same thing. I heard it's more awful than ours. They just copied it since the original is coming from here. The yoghurt is a Bulgarian invention, not Indian, Greek, English or whatever.

In the early 1900s, a Bulgarian scientist called Dr. Stamen Grigorov, found an agent causing Bulgarian yogurt fermentation – a specific bacillus. Grigorov went on to pinpoint two more bacteria: a Streptobacillus and a harmful Streptoccus thermophilus which coexisted with that Lactobacillus in what appeared to be a perfect symbiosis. He also discovered that these two bacteria are not part of the micro-flora that exists in the human intestinal tract; however, they turn out to be very beneficial to it when introduced in it.

Feta cheese is Greek cheese. Bulgarian cheese is harder and it breaks down into tiny pieces when you stick a fork in it.

Ask for a Bulgarian yogurt milk in a bigger store. They should have. I saw in Germany, can be purchased in Texas even, and in Japan it's their favourite thing. It's everywhere. I believe you'll be able to find it.

The Lassy deserves a kill for being straight copied.

First Known Use of lassi
1882 oppps
Lassi is a Dahi (curd)
It was so long ago (at least 8000 years) that the actual origin has long since ... In such areas, 'curd' / 'curds' refers to the word 'yogurt' / 'yoghurt' and its variants.

Wrong. You should give yourself a pause for a second and listen before you write something you'll later regret. You're embarrassing yourself and losing prestige in front of the people this way. It's for your own good. I'll even make the text bigger so you can read it better.

The word 'yogurt' is derived from the words for 'thick' and 'milk' in ancient Thracian. Thracians inhabited parts of the ancient provinces of Thrace, Macedonia, Dacia and other regions of the Balkans. The archaeological research of the Thracian culture started in the 20th century and especially after World War II, mainly on the territory of southern Bulgaria.

As a result of intensive excavation works in the 1960s and 1970s a number of Thracian tombs and sanctuaries were discovered. More significant among them are: the Tomb of Sveshtari, the Tomb of Kazanlak, Tatul, Seuthopolis, Perperikon, the Tomb of Aleksandrovo and others.

Massive discoveries in Central Bulgaria which were summarized as "The Valley of the Thracian Kings". The residence of the Odrysian kings was found in Starosel in the Sredna Gora mountains. A 1922 Bulgarian study found that there were at least 6,269 necropolises in Bulgaria.

Yoghurt has a long history in Bulgaria. It was accidentally discovered around 4,000 years ago when the Thracian nomadic tribes roamed the land.

Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus (until 2014 known as Lactobacillus bulgaricus) is the main bacteria used for the production of yogurt. The name of that bacteria is BULGARI-CUS. From Bulgaria. Not Indicus, from India. Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus can be found naturally in the gastrointestinal tract of mammals living in Bulgaria, but one specific strain, Lactobacillus bulgaricus GLB44, is extracted from the leaves of the Galanthus nivalis (snowdrop flower) in Bulgaria.

The bacterium is only found in Bulgaria but grown artificially in other countries.

I think that's enough for today. Be sure to read it. There's no point in writing more after that post. It's pretty comprehensive and if you argue on that, I don't know what to say but to close my eyes and sigh.

Ta.

Lactobacillus delbrueckii is used in sour beers like lambic, Berliner weiße etc.

Could be. But I'm speaking Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus is the main bacteria used for the production of yogurt. Anyways.

It's just annoying.

Russians often say their alphabet is theirs, they made it. The Cyrillic alphabet was made in Bulgaria. People just go and claim shit so they can feel better when undermining someone.

Not cool.

I saw the French eat it and that's why they were called "frogs" by the Pommies so I figured I try. I found a restaurant in Sofia after 3 years of searchin. The meat was just like chicken. Did not know about the poison though. And BTW it was so expensive it broke my bank.

Well pardon my French. Now I realise why he has a toad with a cane. I thought it was just an image of a toad holding a golf stick or something lol.

I think it's like this fella:

I mean, sorry, I'm not a biologist but Aussie's frog (cane toad) just looks so much fatter. The one for cooking is not a fatty and it has no poison. I'm still alive and well I mean.

And in my language we have one word for all canes, toads, frogs and such bastard jumpers.

Zhaba. Just some zhabas.
