Are you unintentionally buying "mild" yoghourt? A lot of mass-produced supermarket yoghourt is dumbed down. An organic one might be better. Or you could make your own. I make my own using unflavoured Easi-Yo (cheating!). If you leave it to "cook" for the maximum recommended time it is quite sharply flavoured.
Incidentally I never put cumin in mine and neither does my favourite restaurant.
