There is always plain tomatoes grated for the kids and for me, and extra zhug on the table. We also have a yogurt on the table as well. Two kinds, both with the same base of Gvina levana, shamenet, and leben. To one they add grated garlic, a little salt and fresh dill. To the other they add a dried spice mix my mother in law makes that consists of dried chili, zatar, and garlic.Andrea

Still no ideas about this?
Anyone have a recipe for making the sauce/spread usually just called “resek” and is commonly served with jachnun or Yemenite pita? I know it’s made with grated raw tomatoes and schug, but I couldn’t get it to taste like the real thing. I tried both grating by hand, and by food processor, but the consistency wasn’t right.
