Tarator | Bulgarian Cold Yogurt Soup

For the second day I'm sharing a easy dish from Bulgaria. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 44.
Tarator is a Bulgarian yogurt soup. The basic ingredients include yogurt, cucumber & garlic. This is cold soup is slightly thicker & can be made instantly in no time. 
Tarator tasted just like cucumber raita, which accompanies with pulao, biryani & similar rice items. 
The only difference is you add garlic & oil to flavor it up. Using cold yogurt & water in making this soup reduces the refrigeration time very much. 
Adapted from here.
