Cypriot yogurt dessert

I'd spent some time working in Cyprus, and one night I had this creamy dessert after a meal of Meze at a little restaurant sitting under ripe juicy hanging grapes, breathing air scented by wild lavender and jasmine. I felt like I was in ancient Cyprus at the dawn of civilization. I returned again and again to the restaurant just for this dessert. It is so simple to make, yet great tasting!

Greek Yogurt
Honey (stronger tasting honey would be better)
toasted walnuts

1. Spoon a few spoonful of greek yogurt in the center of a soup plate
2. drizzle honey around the yogurt
3. sprinkle toasted walnuts on yogurt and serve!

For the peanut root soup, do i put the whole root, with leaves and shelled peanuts to cook? where can i buy peanut root? dont seem to see any stalls selling in the market.

Yes you can use butter to fry rosti.

peanut roots soup, after washing the roots, just put the whole plant in the soup pot(you don't have to shell the peanut). I do it by bending the roots around the base of the soup pot, and place the meat/bone in the middle.

You can buy peanut root in wet market stall specialising in herbs. I bought mine from Sing Seong Supermarket or ChinaTown temp wet market.
