Mint Chakkah~ A Creamy Curd and Mint Dip

Mint Chakkah

Does this picture remind you of Ice cream? 
Do you crave to have it? Well so do I?
But waits its not ice cream but a Creamy Curd and Mint Dip!! 
Tastes awesome!!
Its called Chakkah !!

Chakkah is thick and creamy strained yogurt served in Afghanistan either as a dip or a sauce. It is also used as an ingredient in many Afghani dishes.

Mint Chakkah
Recipe Source:My Diverse Kitchen
  • 2 cup   curds
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Using a cheese cloth hang the curds for 2 -3 hours. (As I do not like the smell of the cheesecloth, after I remove the curds I prefer to use a fine nylon strainer for the job.
  • The result of the hanging should be a creamy and not dry.  
  • Mix the yogurt and the garlic in a bowl. Do not beat.
  • Cover and refrigerate till required. 
  •  Just before serving, stir in the salt and half the chopped mint.
  •  Garnish with the remaining mint and serve.
  •  This makes 1 cup of Minty Chakkah.

  • This Chakkah should have a nice but not too strong, flavour of garlic so add as much garlic you need to get that.
