This is one of my signature dishes which I take to every potluck and picnic. It is so embarassing when I am asked how I made it because it is so easy ! I made up this recipe once after reading the ingredients on a store bought ready made dip mix. I then played around with ingredients over the years and now I have found the perfect blend of garlic, onion and chillies. If you do make this, you can adjust all the seasoning according to your taste. Normal yogurt can be substituted for lactose free, vegan and greek yogurt. Garlic can be omitted if you cant stand it. Feel free to add your own ingredients and let me know!

This recipe has been made by my student Elena while we were learning English. Its a good way to start kids to learn to cook in the kitchen . You can serve this dip with chips, crackers, crudites, fried samosas, chicken nuggets etc… its yum with almost anything ! Even as a sandwich spread.

SO…here is how you make it!


500 grams of yogurt of your choice

1 sachet of onion soup mix

Garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper powder and chilli powder to taste

1/2 cup of fresh coriander leaves chopped fine ( please omit if you dont like coriander)

1/4 cup of spring onions chopped fine


Mix all the ingredients together. Taste and adjust seasoning to your likes. Keep it  for an hour so that the yogurt soaks in all the spices.

Serve chilled and enjoy!
