Made from hung curds and seasoned with garlic, the pungent dip tastes great when spread on bread, lavash, or fresh pita. It has a prominent presence on the breakfast table, in Middle Eastern households.

The aroma of garlic with garlic and tossed in with hung curds makes a great dip. Have it with any veggies.
