    Does ayran ush have anything to do with yoghurt? I remember there's a type of turk yoghurt drink called yoghurt, so.

    Ayran is the best drink in the world ugh

    And yeah, the base is ayran, it has spinach, dill, coriander, rice and flour and that's it, you stir until it boils and you leave it. Looks weird, tastes good. I think Iranians call it something like ush-e-dogh

    Ohhh, I've heard of that. The iranians at our mosque make it sometimes when one of them on the volunteer list gets their turn to cook lol. I thought it was called Dovğа in Azeri though. I guess that's something else, haha. And yeah, I'm from sylhet, most of our food looks weird and tastes good, so I'm not put off.

    Also, are dolmates the same thing as dolmeh?

    I guess it depends on which province you're from, my dad's side are from Nakhchivan which borders Iran, so they have their own dialect of Azeri and have some different words. And yes, dolamates is the greek name for dolma, but most people know it as dolmates so I just called it that

    Ohhh, lol. I didn't even realise it was a thing in Greece. I think I know a guy from Nakhchivan, is it also spelled nakshawan sometimes? His surname is nakshawani.

    I think Nakshwani is an Iraqi surname, Nakhchivan is sometimes spelled with a "e" instead of an i, but never I've heard it be called Nakshawan

    According to my man Ali, Iraqis are not an ethnic group, but a regional arab cultural group, and they're from all over the place. Some are sumerian-babylonian, some arab, some persian, some turkmen, and his family is originally azeri but probably mixed by now.
