When I was a kid, my mom would send me off to buy yogurt from our local dairy. Even in a large metropolis like Bombay, back in the 1990s there were no supermarkets, just local vendors who owned small specialty food stores. I didn’t enjoy making that trek, but I loved the glass of sweet and creamy spiced almond milk the shopkeeper would give me. And I liked to watch him cut chunks from the yogurt. It resembled a big, soft, pudding, which he kept in a large metallic vessel.
