Comments :

Made from thick, rich sheep’s milk yoghurt, this tangy sauce is part of the meze table in every Greek tavern. For a similar consistency with cow’s milk yoghurt, you must first drain it of excess water. The sauce is delicious served with fried eggplant and zucchini, lamb chops or meatballs, or as a dip for pita bread.
