Cooking Tarator Soup:
Step 1: Prepare the cucumber.
The whole process of cooking the soup will take no more than 15 minutes. Of all the actions, slicing a cucumber is the most laborious. So, peel the cucumber, cut into small cubes and transfer to a deep plate or bowl.
Step 2: Prepare the garlic.
Peel the garlic clove. You need to grate it or use the garlic. So finely chopped with a knife will not work, and pieces of garlic will come across in the soup, you see, this is not very pleasant. Grated garlic is transferred to a small plate.
Step 3: Prepare the walnuts.
Walnuts need to be chopped, but not very finely to make small pieces. It is easier to do this in a mortar, stone or marble, however, any method convenient for you will do, the main thing is the result.
Step 4: Prepare the dill.
Dill is an essential ingredient in soup. It is better to use fresh herbs, but you can take dry ones, though the aroma and taste will not be so pronounced. So, finely chop the dill and transfer to a plate.
Step 5: Cooking the Soup.
Pour yogurt into a bowl or pan. Of course, the best option is homemade sour milk; the storefront, unfortunately, does not sour as it should. Another option is ordinary kefir, fat content at your discretion. So, pour the sour milk into a bowl and beat until smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Kefir does not need to be whipped.
Add ice water, garlic, cucumbers, olive oil, half dill, salt and mix. Everything, the soup is ready.
Step 6: Serve the soup.
Pour the soup into small bowls or deep plates, add dill greens and a tablespoon of chopped walnuts to each.
