Most of us only familiar with yogurt in plastic container sitting on the shelves of supermarket that comes with variety of flavors. But a plain yogurt can be enjoyed in another way as a different dish. This refreshing yogurt recipe is a great accompaniment to meat dishes such as kebab or grilled meat, or simply enjoy with bread.

Cucumber Yogurt is a famous Persian dish, especially in Iran which is known as Mast-o-Khiar. Here in Malaysia you can easily find it at any Iranian restaurant.
