  • Step 1

    In a small sauce, stir together the yogurt and sour cream over medium heat. Let heat through for about 2 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the flour and salt, then slowly stream in the water until combined without any lumps.

  • Step 3

    Stir the flour mixture into the yogurt mixture and cook until thickened (should resemble a raita in consistency), 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Remove from heat and stir in lemon, then adjust the seasoning with salt. Serve warm with kubaneh or challah.
