Plain yogurt and curd taste the same. Though most of the times yogurt is the flavoured one and is available in variable colours (Strawberry yogurt, mango and so on). Curd is the natural one we make from milk without any additions.

I had been in Australia, Sydney to be precise for a short visit recently and found yogurt made of sheep milk or goat milk is very popular there. People generally do not know much about curd there.
