Labneh is a popular mezze dish, and serves as an interesting alternative to sour cream or cream cheese. Made from hung curds and seasoned with garlic, the pungent dip tastes great when spread on bread, lavash, or fresh pita. It has a prominent presence on the breakfast table, in Middle Eastern households.
- Pound the sesame seeds and olive oil in a mortar- pestle (khalbatta) to form a coarse paste. Keep aside.
- Combine the curds, garlic, fresh cream, olive oil-sesame paste and salt in a bowl and mix well with help of a whisk till smooth.
- Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Garnish with a sprig of parsley and serve chilled with lavaash.
