Where I live now I can't get Pavel's, but Mountain High is almost as good. It comes in full-fat or low-fat, as well. I'm not even interested in nonfat, though there's nothing "wrong" about it; just not my taste.
The yogurt I had in India was made in wide, shallow clay dishes, from full-fat milk. After fermenting, it would be sliced in the same dish, to let some of the whey drain off. The wet curds (with some of the whey drained off) are what was sold. They were scooped from the pan with a spatula-type utensil.
Here in the USA, rather than draining it, it's always thickened, from what I have seen. Sometimes pectin or gelatin is used. I prefer having it thickened with dry milk, if anything, but would like to find a place I can buy it as I did in India.
Any pointers? Yes I can make my own and I have, but usually I buy it :D
