Years ago I worked at an Egyptian restaurant here in Boise. The food was fabulous–working with Middle-Eastern men…not so much. Anyway, one of my favorite dips on the menu was the k’hair belaban. Called raita in some nations, it’s a Middle-Eastern staple with as many variations as there are recipes for chicken soup. This is a very simple and light recipe that’s become a favorite of Clara’s and often shows up at volleyball tournaments. Serve with fresh vegetables, pita or use as a dip for lamb or chicken kebabs.
Rocket science here. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl, adjust flavoring and seasonings to your taste.
Energetics: This recipe cools summer heat while replenishing yin and fluids. Cucumbers are high in vitamins and clear heat. The yogurt nourishes yin and replenishes fluids. A little lemon helps to move statis.
