Persian Cucumber Dip
I came to Sydney in 2008 to do my masters degree, where I was living until my recent relocation to Melbourne. I never considered myself much of a cook back home in Tehran, but living away from my native metropolis, I’ve found myself slaving away in the kitchen more often, reproducing my favourite Persian dishes- such as this cucumber dip.
500g plain yoghurt
1 cup crushed walnuts
1 cup sultanas, soaked in water for 1 hour if possible
2-3 Lebanese cucumbers, peeled and chopped
1/2-2 tablespoon dried mint, depending on your preference
Mix all together and enjoy!
