Tzatziki - Greek Sauce & Dip

Tzatziki is the universal dip! It’s one of those side dishes or accompaniments which can be served as an appetizer, as a refresher after meal, as a sauce or a dip or a sandwich spread!  I found this recipe from a show on TLC and changed it slightly for our very Indian tastes. It goes really well with fried fish and chicken, but you can also serve it with grilled veggies or in your burgers instead of mayo.

Time 10 mins
Makes 2 cups
2 cups Strained Yoghurt
(You can also strain 3 cups of plain yoghurt using a muslin cloth. Pour the yoghurt in the cloth. Then twist the cloth from top end, and hand it from a height for 15-20 mins)
1 cucumber
1 Onion
1 tomato
10-15 mint leaves
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp roasted cumin powder
1 tsp lime juice

  • Finely chop the onion, cucumber and mint.
  • Deseed the tomato and finely chop it.
  • Take all the above chopped veggies in a bowl.
  • Add the hung curd, pepper, cumin powder, salt and lime juice.
  • Mix gently. Tzatziki is ready to enjoy!
