    I used garlic powder and fresh mint. After grating the cucumber, I only used the pulp and drained the liquid. Also, there isn't any need to add water. This should be a thicker dip. It tastes exactly like the dip available in restaurants and delis in Istanbul.

    Delicious! I use fresh mint and grate the cucumbers. Reviewed for PAC Spring 2010.

    I made a third of this which worked fine. I added in about 1/4 cup water to make it a bit soupier however I did want to use it as a sauce that didn't go absolutely everywhere so stopped at that. It's delicious and I'll make it again before my tub of yoghurt is finished!

    As indicated I added water to make this more soupy. Also drizzled more olive oil on top before serving along with some paprika. Great taste and thank you for posting.
