Shallot Yogurt Dip in bowl with crackersMast Moosir is a traditional Persian yogurt dip. It uses Persian shallots (moosir), which you can only get in most places outside of Asia in dried form. They're available online and in many international markets, but if you can't get a hold of them, give this a go with minced fresh shallots. You'll love the refreshing bits of crunchiness mingling with the soft and creamy yogurt.
