Doogh

Do you make Doogh? I used to make it all the time and always used dried mint. Have you ever made with fresh mint? If so any tips on using the fresh herb. I tried it once and practically choked on the mint leaves, I was not able to chop fine enough. Maybe the food processor but what do you recommend if I wanted to use fresh. I have a ton in my garden and want to use it if I can.

I LOVE doogh! I was introduced to it as a kid, and was so happy to drink it every day when I visited Istanbul a couple of years ago. I like to make it by whisking plain yogurt with dried mint. I add salt and pepper to season, then whisk in seltzer and garnish with fresh mint. You can pour it over ice, or not.

Thank you so much Louisa, I think I will stick to the dried mint as I have always had it. I am so with you, it's delicious and refreshing and I almost always use ice.

Yes, dried mint is a wonderful ingredient, the fresh mint is just for looks!

Yes, just plain yogurt, full fat is best, seltzer or sparkling water, mint and a pinch of salt. It's so delicious. I make it by the pitcherful

And it is incredibly healthy as well. This thread is bringing back happy memories. The food of the Middle-East is the great gift to the world ... and so healthy.
