    Kurtob is made with bread strips and a kind of dried and then reconstituted yogurt, along with onions and other goodies. It’s really tasty!

    In Afghanistan they also eat dried yogurt (kurut), but when I ate it there it was in very (very) dry chunks the size of big pebbles that one gnaws on. It’s very salty and remarkably nice.
