Dovga (Azerbaijani: Dovğа) is a national meal of Azerbaijani cuisine, a soup traditionally made from plain yoghurt and herbs.[1]

More often now, it is a vegetarian, yoghurt-based soup cooked with a variety of herbs (coriander, dill, and others), rice and sometimes with chickpeas. It is often served warm in winter or refreshingly cool in summer.[2][3] Traditionally served as an Azerbaijani wedding soup, served between courses of meat.[2]
