I have always believed that 'dahi hota hai', but I have heard some people say 'dahi hoti hai'. Which one is correct?

What about saabun (soap)? I would say 'saabun hota hai', but have heard some people insist 'saabun hoti hai'. Which one is correct?

In a male dominated society, the golden rule is to use the muzzakar - only change it when there is no choice !

so Garri (car) is a muanas due to the fact that it has a Yay at the end - same applies to Kashtee (boat)!

Dahi is an anomaly ! given above rule, you would expect it to be a muanas - but its not :) (or is it !)

It means hota hai. I agree. :D
This part of your grammar is sound, Dhoni. But let me tell you that according to urdu grammar, dahi is never drank; it's always eaten.

Dahi khaana, na ke dahi peena. :inzi

If you are drinking it, then it must be something else. :)

It is very confusing. Dahi hota hai but if you churn it to a loose thick paste with some water then lassi hoti hai.

Saabun is masculine.

I'm not very sure about Dahi. Dahi banti hay/ dahi ko jaag (ferment) laga di hay / dahi khani hay..... thats what I've always heard.. So I think its feminine..

Also one more thing : Haleem.. Is it a guy or a girl? Because in my (very large), everyone has said "Haleem BANTA hay.." but everyone else says haleem "banti" hay... :20:

Khocha, kidhar banti hai, Peshawar main? :******:

honestly all this depends on your family background or where you grew up. i think both are acceptable although pathans take it a bit too far by making everything zanana . :gul but what i mean to say is that people say both like 1 baja hai or 1 bajay hain both are acceptable :13:

i have heard most people say haleem banai hai or haleem khani hai ? so haleem is zanana for me :P

This thread reminds me of a joke

Aik Punjabi aur Pathan ki aapas mai'n larai ho rahi thi .
Punjabi : " paani behta hai "
Pathan : " paani behti hai "

Kaafi larai ke baad dono mai'n tay huwa ke kissi se ja kar poochte hai'n . Dono saamne baithay huwe aik bihari ke pas gaye aur us se sawaal poocha .

" Paani to na behta hai na behti hai , Paani to bahay hai . " Bihari ne jawab dia :P

Dahi piya bhi jata hai.

btw, hota hai ya hoti hai kis time use karo gay?

hota ya hoti to maine kabhi use nahi kiya.

"Dahi hai?" asking mom if there is dahi
"Dahi khaya hai" i ate dahi

i guess you could use it here : "Dahi khatam ho gaya/gaye hai" to gaya use ho ga.

i guess you could use it here : "Dahi khatam ho gaya/gaye hai" to gaya use ho ga.Hota hai ya hoti hai is just to identify the gender of the object. Regardless of whether the term 'Dahi hota/hoti hay' itself doesn't get used.

Since we have also borrowed this 'yogurt' word in the German language from English itself (written as "Joghurt"), the dictionaries put it both ways, i.e masculine as well as feminine.

Just thought would be interesting to share:).
