Mast o Khiar or Persian Yoghurt Dip


Mast o Khiar is much like the well known Greek dish Tzatziki although made using slightly different ingredients  and is used as an accompliment to meals in the same way. It’s also a great dip for the buffet table, with drinks and a lovely appetizer when served with naan or flat bread.

Serves 3.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 a cucumber
  • 3  cups of slightly sour low fat plain yoghurt
  • 2 desert spoons of dried mint
  • a dash of lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • As sprig of fresh mint, walnuts, or slices of radish  to decorate

Preparation:

  • Chop the cucumber into small pieces or grate

Method:

  1. Combine the yoghurt, cucumber and mint and mix well.
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste and I add a dash of lime juice but this is personal taste.
  3. Pour into a serving dish and chill
  4. Decorate before serving.

Serve with naan or flat bread.
