DOGH – An Afghan Yogurt Drink

Hello and Welcome to another Food (& Drinks) Day on Daily Dose of Art! After a whole week of flying kites, you must be thirsty..hahaha. So today, I bring you something cool and refreshing a drink called DOGH. And it is indeed as unique as it sounds -it comes from the land of The Kite Runner – Afghanistan.

Afghan Yogurt Drink

Cold water
Dried mint

Put 16 ounces of plain yogurt (homemade or store bought) into a large pitcher, and add 4 cups of cold water. Take 1/2 of a cucumber, peel it and cut it into rounds. Take as much or as little of it as you like and finely chop it into small pieces and add it to the mixture. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the pitcher. Take a pinch of dried mint and rub it between your hands to release some of the essence and sprinkle it over the top of the liquid. Mix well and keep very cold. You can add ice cubes but it will dilute the mix, so I recommend just putting it in the refrigerator. by Christi Qazi Recipe Source
