Make this! You will use it for everything – on top of soups, salads, chicken sandwiches, as a dip, as a companion for a Saturday walk or a Sunday drive. Seriously. We will be using this for many recipes on Afghan Cooks (or some variation of this.) So make up a batch!




Sour cream (optional)

Kashk (optional)

45 cloves garlic minced


lemon juice





The only real instruction here is this – make this according to your taste. If you only have yogurt here are the proportions for 2 cups

Stir together 2 cups yogurt, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1 tbsp dill, 1 tbsp mint, pinch of salt and garlic. Stir together. Add water until the sauce can be drizzled. If you want it thicker, use less water. We make a very thin version of this and keep it in a squeeze bottle.

You can mix the yogurt with sour cream and/or kashk if you can find it. The rest of the ingredients are the same but its important for you to taste it and add more or less mint, lemon juice, dill and salt depending on your own taste. Taste taste taste! this Afghan yogurt sauce will please the entire family.
