Quroot is an acquired taste for the Western palate. It took me 3 years to get used to the very strong, almost rancid taste. There being very few other forms of safe diary (and cheese) around in Nth Afghanistan, one gets used to it. It is, however a choice to keep eating. It could be comparable to how long it takes to get used to dry parmesian cheese, if you are not an Italian. I love Afghan and Persian food now.
