The Zaar World Tour has me searching high and low for new recipes from all corners of the globe. This is an untried recipe by the simplicity and unusual inclusion of yogurt as a sauce for the beans appeals to me.

These green beans were surprisingly good. As I was cooking the dish, I was apprehensive about it as the flavors weren't working for me. Luckily, it tasted great at the end, although my yogurt did curdle a bit. I also served this with your turkey kibbeh, and the two dishes really went well together.
