This is the most delicious recipe ever, I love the yogurt sauce with any kind of food it gives it a tangy flavor that I enjoy very much, it is a very common and popular ingredient in the Iraqi homes as well in Middle Eastern homes. Yogurt is usually on the dinner table almost every day, it is blended with the rice or made into a salad, dip or cooked as a sauce with kubba, meat, and chicken, or made into a drink. Yogurt is the most loved ingredient in the Iraqi homes and throughout the MiddleEast. During my childhood years, I have always seen yogurt on the lunch table as just plain yogurt or in different types of dishes.
