Dali ni horbo
Dali no horbo is a mainstay of diet of the Batak people.
Dali is traded as a commodity in the onan (markets) of Tapanuli.
Water buffalo milk contains 40% more protein than that of the domestic dairy cow and twice the butterfat. It has 43% less cholesterol. In some cases it is tolerated by individuals who have a cow milk allergy. The Batak boil the milk and process it into dali ni horbo by clabbering it with pineapple juice or papaya leaf juice.
