Oshe Moss (Persian Yoghurt Dip)

A Persian yoghurt dip with spinach and beans, topped with golden onions.

A Dip of all Dips

Spinach, beans and yoghurt topped with caramelized onions. Smooth, creamy and textured. All at the same time.

Best served at room temperature with crackers or pita. It’s also lovely with salad or on top of rice.

This recipe came to us from Nikki Vernon, a Sydney girl with Persian heritage, on her mother’s side. Yoghurt is a commonly used ingredient in Persian cooking and this recipe was regularly served in Nikki’s childhood home. One bowl was never enough!

Nikki says, “When I married, Mum and Omi  (Nikki’s grandmother) would stand for hours, week after week, teaching me all the many Persian dishes that they loved. I would stand with pen and paper and meticulously write down every single thing. They would often throw in extra things or change a recipe from one time to the next and simply say “just keep adding till it tastes right. I do very much miss those days of being in the kitchen with three generations bonded together by love, laughter and food. Mum was only 53 when she passed away, leaving behind a legacy started by Omi of a loving family that gathers often, in good times and bad, around the large dining room table surrounded by lots of great food.”

 

The recipe was published in our second book, The Feast Goes On (Harper Collins 2014).

Instructions
  1. Wash and chop the silverbeet. Place in a saucepan, cover and steam, with no extra water, until completely wilted, a few minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Heat the oil in a small frypan and fry the onion over medium to high heat until well caramelised and a deep golden brown, at least 20 minutes. Add salt to taste and set aside to cool.
  3. Mix the silverbeet with the yoghurt, salt, pepper, garlic and beans. Once the onions have cooled, spoon them, together with any remaining cooking oil, on top of the dip.

    Great recipe! I love to try new and interesting recipes like this! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I am trying it this weekend! Can I avoid adding oil on the top of dip after adding onions?

      Thank you Celine. Yes of course, you’ll still have plenty of flavour from all the other ingredients. Enjoy!

This is a wonderful and easy-to-bake and even easier-to-eat Romanian cheesecake loaf made with white cheese (farm or ricotta) and golden polenta. You just have to try it straight out of the oven with a dollop of sour cream - beyond delicious! Find the full recipe for our Romanian Malai from the kitchen of Debbie @delen_catering (which also appears in Now for Something Sweet) below.

INGREDIENTS
3 eggs
230 g (1 cup) caster (superfine) sugar
60 ml (1/4 cup) oil, plus extra for greasing
500 g (1 lb 2 oz) farm (or dry cottage) cheese, chopped
125 g (scant 3/4 cup) polenta
finely grated zest of 1/2 an orange or lemon
1/4 teaspoon salt
sour cream, to serve

METHOD
Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a loaf tin generously.

Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar until pale and creamy.

With the mixer on low, pour in the oil and beat until combined. Add the cheese and beat well then add the polenta, lemon zest and salt.

Continue to beat until well combined. Don’t be concerned if you can still see lumps of cheese.

Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 45 minutes .

Serve warm or at room temperature with a dollop of sour cream.

Makes 1 loaf.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge..

Date and Nut Loaf. This outstanding Date and Nut Loaf comes from Jacqui's beloved nanna. As the winter chill creeps closer to us here in Australia, we can't think of any better thing to enjoy for afternoon tea than a generously buttered slice of nut loaf and a good strong cuppa. You can find the full recipe in our third book It's Always About the Food and our quick video right here
