I like it.

I also like doogh (yoghurt, selzer water, salt, mint, pepper.) It goes very well with chelo-kabob.

Add to that, 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and half a handful of crushed fresh mint and you have a superb sauce

Thank you for the added recipes. Garlic and dill with yoghurt should ward off SARS just fine (especially if you can use several garlic cloves).

Can I get to 97 or so eating ham sandwiches and drinking Coke?

Actually, If Im not mistaken, Japan holds the highest number of centurions and each of them attribute it to their high intake of soy products.

The Proto-Bulgarians were Western Gur-Turks as opposed to Ghuzz turks like Anatolian Turkmen. Kumis/Kumas was common among all these Northern Gur Turks (Bulghars, Sabirs, Khazars, Barsils...). It was also eaten by Ghuzz Turks who moved into Volga Don areas in the 10th and 11 centuries, the Pechenegs and later Cumans/Polovsi/Kipchaks who moved into the area in the 10th century. The article mentioned Mongols eating Yoghurt. They conquered and co-opted the Kipchaks. I wonder when they began eating yoghurt.

Was Youghurt, or at least Kumis comon to all steppe peoples?
Did Ghuzz Turks consume it before migrating from Trans-Oxiana?
There was a lot of interaction and trade between the Thracians and Scythians and the Scythes and Proto-turks. Conceivably yoghurt could have spread across the steppes any time from 800 BCE to 600 CE.
Do you know if the Turkmen ate

I know that recipe, although we use it for chip dip

wasn't this the subject of an 'Inspector Gadget' episode?

Dr.Claw kidnapped a magic goat whos milk was used to make the Yogert so he could live forever.

Thanks for telling the story of the western Turks. Sounds much better coming from a non-Turk.

Personally, I don't have a clue about the history of yoghurt, but I can tell you that the Turk made good use of everything horse. Even the word "horse" is used as the root of many other words such as jump, attack, agressive, throw, etc.

Grate a large cucumber, mix with one quart of plain yoghurt. Add salt and garlic to taste, and a little olive oil.. Mmmm.

Thanks for the ping and the recipe too! Sounds yummy! Send more recipes any time.

Add some water and chopped fresh dill, chill it (or add a few ice cubes) and you've got "tarator"!

He he, now you know where my nick came from.
