AAb Doogh

 
Aab Dugh -Doogh Khiar 
 
Raita the Persian way is the best way to describe this easy to prepare dip. Its wonderfully fresh, served chilled with a warm fresh naan, lavaash or roti. It is a good accompaniment with any kind of meal. The deliciousness lies in the burst of flavour and texture so keep it all ready to mix literally just as you are about to serve it.
