Notes

This is very similar to Tzatziki, but has a little Moroccan flair with the addition of Curry powder, not Indian Curry powder which is a little different. Moroccan Curry spices are sometimes called "Tangine Spice" or more often "Ras al hanout" Meaning "Head of the Store". Just like Indian curry powder, Moroccan Curry recipes are many and varied. Think chili peppers, white pepper corns, bay leaves, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, cardamom, ginger, tumeric, cumin, saffron... And sometimes things that are hard to find in the US such as orris root (Iris rhizome powder)

If you cannot find one you are happy with see the recipe below that I borrowed from the Food Network website courtesy of Tanya Holland
