Cilantro-Mint-Yogurt Dip

When I’ve posted an appetizer, there has to be something to go with it too, right? Yeah, so here’s some ‘Cilantro-Mint-Yogurt Dip’ to go with your kababs, appetizers or anything else you like it with, a’la restaurant style! This one is for Sudha and Anand who had asked me for it sometime back. Here you go guys. So, when are you calling me over and treating me to some nice kababs 😉


  • Fresh Mint leaves – 1/2 cup (firmly packed)
  • Coriander/Cilantro – 1/2 cup (firmly packed)
  • Ginger – 1/2 inch piece
  • Green Chillies – 2-3 nos (alter to suit your taste)
  • Lime juice – from 1 big lime (can be substituted with Vinegar too)
  • Sugar – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Thick curd – 1 cup (lightly whisked to form a smooth texture)


  • Blend all the ingredients except curd, to a smooth paste in a mixer (use just a few drops of water).
  • Empty into a bowl and fold the yogurt through. Adjust salt and serve with appetizer of choice.

  1. Wow! Am sure this will taste great with kababs and the kind..

  2. Hey Mads,
    Thanks a ton for this. I’m sure my man is going to be really thrilled when i make this for him 😀 One more request from our side. We are badly in need of the perfect ‘Iyengar Puliyogare’ recipe, like what they give as prasadam in temples. The one we make at home (the normal style) doesnt match theirs by any chance. Please take your time (no hurry) and post it when you make it 🙂

  3. And I will suprise you with some of your own dishes the next time you guys are home.. 😉

    • Hey Sudha,
      You’re most welcome. Yeah yeah, go on and wow the hubby 😉 and let me know if he liked it. Ooooh, and I cant wait for the surprise…lets meet sooner! 😛
      Will post my Nani’s Puliyogarai Gojju recipe soon. It does taste good since its been around for 3-4 generations now, and she was an expert at it. I have to make some gojju for us too, since I’ve run out of stock…long overdue now. Perhaps next weekend.

  4. Easy and simple yet delicious chutney to enjoy with some samosas or with some crackers…yummm!!
