Generally yogurt dip will be made with greek yogurt. But in normal Indian homes buying greek yogurt and making it at home will be bit out of question of turns out expensive too. Greek yogurt dip will be very thick and creamy and will be perfect for dips. I have already posted a sour cream dip recipe.  While some part of the world is experiencing heavy snow till now, here Summer already started  and to beat the heat we are taking loads of water, cucumber, coconut water, oranges and all. Some times get bored with eating the cucumbers or salads as such. So to make it interesting and cool, i am sharing you the recipe of yogurt dip . Just try with any salads or even for tikkas. I will be sharing some summer cooler recipe here often. Stay tuned.

  • Mix well. Serve with cucumber | carrot or mix this with any salads and serve chilled.
  1. Garlic can be avoided if you do not like the raw smell.
  2. Herbs like parsely, basil, dill leaves can also be added to this to make it flavourful. But do not add too much. Just add little.
