Mast-o-Khiar / Persian Yogurt And Cucumber Dip

     
                 For Muslim Food Bloggers group challenge, this month's theme is " Cooking from a Country - Iran". I chose a simple dip named as  Mast o Khiar - the Persian yoghurt and cucumber dip. "Mast" means yoghurt and "Khiar" means cucumber.  Mast-o-Khiar is a refreshing yogurt dip made with cucumbers, mint and seasoning. 

Ingredients:

2 cups yoghurt
2 persian cucumbers, chopped into small pieces
1 tbsp dried mint / 2 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper powder
fresh mint, dried rose petals- for garnishing

Preparation:
  1. In a large bowl, add the chopped cucumber, mint, pepper powder and salt and mix well.
  2. Add in the yoghurt and give it a nice stir.
  3. Garnish with fresh / dried mint and  rose petals. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving..
  4. Serve with pita bread, crackers, rice or as a side dish with grilled chicken, lamb etc...
  • Can also add raisins, walnuts etc...
