This dip is perfect for barbecue’s on a nice summer day. It’s cool and very refreshing. Just the thing you need on a hot summer day. Teekha refers to hot and Meeta refers to sweet in Hindi.
If you are short of summer day’s then this is a very good accompaniment for any Indian/Barbecued/Mediterranean skewered starters. Or on days you plan to grill some veggie’s/meat in your oven, this dip will go well with them.
Ingredients: (Serves 3-4)
Cream – 2 tbsp
Honey – 2 tsp
Garlic cloves – 2 medium-sized, make a fresh paste using a pestle
Red chilli powder – a pinch or more, based on your taste
Black peppercorns – 1/4 tsp or more, based on your taste, freshly crushed
Chaat Masala – 1/4 tsp or more
Greek style yogurt/ thick-set yogurt – 4 tbsp
Dill – 2 sprigs, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Mix all the ingredients mentioned above. Add salt to taste. Your dip is ready. Chill it in the fridge for a bit if you have time.. The flavours blend in better this way..
You can serve this with some grilled or barbecued veggies.
Check my Mix-veg skewers recipe, this serves as a perfect dip for it.
Notes: Does not involve any cooking. Ready in a jiffy. I sometimes prepare this & fridge it overnight since the flavours blend in better this way…
