How To Make The Persian Versian Of Tzatziki

This mix of cucumber & yoghurt (aka tzatziki) is what we have almost every day in summer. With raisins, walnuts, rose petals & mint, simply add water to serve it like a cold soup or make it with thick yoghurt to serve it as a dip. Either way, I'm sure you'll be impressed.


  • 2 Cups Greek Yoghurt (or unsweetened coconut yoghurt)
  • 1 cup Diced Cucumber (eq. 3 Lebanese cucumbers)
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts
  • 1/2 cup Raisins
  • 1.5 tbsp Exotic Bazaar Rose Petals
  • 2 tbsp Dried Mint
  • Pinch of Salt & Black Pepper
  • 5 Cubes of Ice
