Pronounced eye-run. Popular cold refreshment drink in Turkey, consisting of yogurt thinned down to a drinkable consistency with milk and/or water, and spiced with salt, sometimes also mint. Like the similar Indian lassi, it helps soothe your taste buds after eating spicy food. This works mostly through yogurt's fat content, which absorbs and defuses the spice.
