Minty Yogurt Dip / Haydari

haydariMinty Strained Yogurt Dip / Haydari is a very common Turkish dip. The name of it Haydari always made me think that it has a story behind it because Haydar is a common Turkish name. After a mini research I found our that the word “Haydar” means lion and what a coincidence the Turkish raki is called “lion’s milk”. So perhaps this dip is called haydari to remind people to enjoy it with raki and fish dishes.

Actually there is no limitation; you can serve it even with crackers, kebaps, any time you feel like it.

It works better with strained yogurt try to use yogurt which doesn’t have too much water in it. If you are not a lazy person you might want to obtain your own strained yogurt by putting your yogurt into a cheesecloth and waiting or pressing down to get rid of the excess water in the yogurt.

Adjust the amount of garlic and salt according to your taste. It is sold ready in the markets nowadays but it is so easy to make, not worth to buy. Enjoy.
