Mast-o-Khair (Persian Yoghurt and Cucumber Dip)

This month I was assigned Tara's blog Tara's Multicultural Table for my Secret Recipe Club assignment. As the name suggests Tara's blog is a treasure trove of recipes from all over the world. She boldly explores cuisines and her blog is the perfect place for anyone who loves to move out of comfort zone. I was tempted by many recipes as I browsed through the blog, but finally settled for Mast-o-khair. A very close resemblance to the Indian cucumber raita. I loved the hint of mint and the crunch of nuts with the smoothness of the yoghurt. A perfect accompaniment and cooler. A beautiful dish to look at and couldn't get simpler. For more , don't forget to check Tara's blog.

1cup yoghurt
1tbs dried mint
Salt and pepper to taste

Possible Garnishes
Dried mint
Dried rose petals
Chopped walnuts

Combine all ingredients. Serve immediately or chilled.

  5. I just made a Greek dish on Sunday that had a cucumber yogurt dip and it was delicious. I think mint would be even better in that combination though :)
