Do you remember when I posted about these Persian Spices I got from Raw Spice Bar? I received Mast-o-Khiar, Saffron threads, and Advieh Khoresht. I had never cooked with these spices, so thankfully I got these great recipes to go with!
I used the Mast-o-Khiar to create a delicious yogurt dip to go with these Rosemary Chicken Meatballs.
First off, the Mast-o-Khiar herbs were beautiful!!!! My goodness. With a dash of rose petals, they make anything look pretty.
It was a great blend of dill, mint, rose petals and black peppercorn. We put these spices in with some yogurt, cucumbers, garlic and lemon, and it was fantastic.
It’s a fun challenge to cook with new flavors and spices. I sometimes get boring with my cooking, and Raw Spice Bar is a great way to spice up your cooking! Plus, this would be a great gift for any cooks!
Below is my version of the yogurt dip. Next week I’m going to tackle the Advieh Khoresh!
Mast O Khiar Yogurt Dip
Prep Time: 15 minutes
- 2 cups yogurt (We used Nancy’s Organic Whole Yogurt)
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
- 1 seedless cucumber, diced
- 2 tbsp Mast o Khiar herbs (or a mix of dried dill and mint)
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Fresh dill and mint, optional
Combine garlic, mast o khiar, and lemon with the yogurt.
Fold in the cucumbers
Top with fresh herbs and serve! Drizzle a nice olive oil on top.
