What could be better on hot days? Cold refreshing soup, of course. The classic tarator is a Bulgarian dish, but it is also popular in Macedonia, where it is called "Taratur". Moreover, this soup can be served both in a plate and in a glass, if it is completely liquid. The main component is always sour milk (curdled milk), diced cucumbers and dill with garlic. Be sure to vegetable oil, namely olive oil.
There is a very similar dish in Turkey called "Dzadziki". Moreover, in terms of ingredients, it is no different from the classic "Tarator". The only difference is that sour milk (translated from Turkish as "yogurt") is filtered through cheesecloth, removing excess moisture. The result is a creamy mass, and when all the other ingredients are added, it turns into an appetizer, but not into a soup.
The very process of making a classic Tarator with curdled milk is very simple. Cucumbers are not grated, as is done in Western Ukraine, but are cut into small cubes.
Garlic and dill are finely chopped.
Everything is put into chilled yogurt.
Fresh fragrant walnuts are ground in a mortar to fine crumbs. But I love it when larger pieces of nut come across in the soup.
The nut is also sent to the soup.
The final touch is vegetable oil and salt. Oil, preferably olive oil. The soup is salted to taste.
Classic Tarator with black bread is an incredibly nutritious and tasty dish.
The soup is served very cold and steeped for about an hour in the refrigerator.
