You can make your Greek yogurt from your regular yogurt, and go from there.
I don't think there is any reason to drain it before using. You will just have a bit more whey to drain off if you use regular yogourt for that recipe.

Yes, it is, thank you. Raita, tzatziki and cacik are all very similar (and yummy!)

If you don't squeeze the liquid out of the cucumbers, that Tzatziki is gonna be a mess.

I put a tablespoon of fresh dill and a teaspoon of fresh mint in mine. It's also great as a veggie dip.

You can put it in a colander lined with cheesecloth or muslin in the fridge overnight an in the morning you will have neufatchel cheese (I'm sure I'm spelling it wrong) and then use that as a substitute for cream cheese in...say a cheesecake

Gatte ki Sabzi recipe | How to make Gatte ki Sabzi

This is an Indian dairy dish you might like. When the recipe calls for kurd, they mean yogurt.

Obvious, however, I did not post a recipe, just the ingredients.

Marinate, marinate, marinate! Yogurt is the perfect foil for Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Indian flavors. Score skinless (and even boneless) chicken breasts deeply, then marinate in yogurt spiced with grated garlic and ginger, turmeric, garam masala, fenugreek, cardamom, lemon juice, and cayenne (if you like heat), a little neutral oil, like coconut, for two to eight hours then grill over hot coals to sear, then move to the cool part of the grill to finish. The yogurt marinade will keep the white meat moist and the flavor is sublime! I did this with Cornish game hens. Serve it sprinkled with cilantro and lemon wedges. Still have yogurt left over? (Of course you do! Sixteen POUNDS? Sweet Moses!) Make a raita to accompany the chicken, or tzaziki if you care to fuse Med and Indian. Damn, now I'm hungry!
