A perfect sauce that is cooling and refreshing. This recipe is the best one in terms of balance and flavor, and I have tried quite a few. It is so easy to make. This sauce is lighter, not packed with cucumbers. This style allows you to enjoy the yogurt and the flavors and not have the cucumber take over the sauce.
I have no idea when or where I bought this book. However, every recipe I cook from it is amazing, packed with authentic flavors and wonderful dishes from the culture. So happy it is on my shelf.
