Juju Dhau (The King Yogurt from Bhaktapur, Nepal)
Juju Dhau is a sweetened custard-like yogurt that comes from Bhaktapur, Nepal, and is an important component of all feasts and celebrations. “JujuDhau” literally means “king of yogurt” in the Newari language.  While cow’s milk is used to make regular yogurt, fresh buffalo milk (bhaisi) is traditionally used for JujuDhau, resulting in a richer taste and texture.

  11. Hello there! This article couldn’t be written much better!
    Looking at this article reminds me of my previous
    roommate! He always kept talking about this. I most certainly will
    send this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a very good read.
    Thank you for sharing!

    well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to
    read more of your useful information. Thanks for the post. I will certainly comeback.

    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a fair price? Cheers, I

  15. I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours nowadays, yet I
    never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It is beautiful price enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you
    probably did, the internet might be much more helpful than ever before.

  16. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get
    that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a excellent job with this. In addition,
    the blog loads super fast for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!
