I live in Turkey and love ordering haydari. It is a thick and tangy Turkish yoghurt dip best served with meat kebabs and pitta bread. You can even serve it with toasted pitta triangles as a party nibble.
Different from other yogurt dips I have made...the cream cheese really makes it smooth and delectable...Old and young loved it.. - 03 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Normally cream cheese is not one of the ingredients, but it can work to firm watery yogurt used in Europe/Usa etc. - 05 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My Turkish friend makes it with Olive Oil, chillis, salt & pepper to taste. The best and freshest Greek or homemade yoghurt; quality Olive Oil and Feta are ideal. We love it! - 02 Oct 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
