btw, my dear English speaker: what is the difference between strainer, sieve and colander and do you drain or strain food in strainer?
The size of the holes, getting bigger.

Verb-wise, to drain would mean to remove water from an otherwise solid ingredient, like past, rice, vegetables. To strain would be to separate solids out of a semi-liquid, so you'd strain tea leave out of tea, or in this case strain the fermented milk to separate the curds from the whey.
