A cool, refreshing Persian side dish that’s a family favorite!
Mast-o-Khiar is one of my all-time favorite dishes. It’s a cool, refreshing mix of yogurt, cucumber, and mint.
It’s a side dish that’s served alongside almost every Persian meal, sort of like Greek Tzatziki, Indian Raita, or Turkish Cacik.
I always make a huge batch of it to have on hand and enjoy for several days after the initial meal.
Leftovers are my jam!
And it’s super handy to store said leftovers in the quart carton that the yogurt came in.
Head over to my post over on The Yogurt Dish to get the scoop on how this particular variation of Mast-o-Khiar came to be, along with the full recipe!
And stay tuned for more delicious Persian recipes coming to Big Flavors soon! You can already find the recipe for the Polo Shevid Baghali (Persian Dill + Lima Bean Rice) here!
