  Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius) milk was prepared by grinding soaked safflower seeds with water at 1:5 ratio. Compositional analysis showed 89.90% moisture, 5.48% fat, 1.77% protein, 2.36% carbohydrate, 0.45% ash and 0.04% crude fibre. Safflower milk blended probiotic dahi was developed by using safflower milk-cow milk blends of 20:80, 30:70 and 40:60 ratio, lactic cultures at 1, 1.5 and 2 percent, probiotic cultures viz., Lactobacillus acidophilus LA-5, Bifidobacterium bifidum BB-12 at 3, 5 and mixed cultures of these at 3 and 5 percent levels. Control probiotic dahi was prepared without incorporation of safflower milk. Among the various levels of safflower milk-cow milk blends, lactic cultures and probiotic cultures tried in probiotic dahi, the blends of 30:70 safflower milk-cow milk, 1.5% lactic culture and 5% Bifidobacterium bifidum respectively, scored maximum sensory scores. Safflower milk blended probiotic dahi showed 12.45, 3.73, 8.72, 2.24, 3.12, 0.60 and 0.82 percent of total solids fat, SNF, carbohydrate, protein, ash and titratable acidity (% LA) respectively, as against the control dahi (12.41, 3.63, 8.78, 2.12, 3.50, 0.65 and 0.80 percent).
