Cucumber yogurt dip
ingredients: 1 cucumber, grated and drained of juice 200g greek style yogurt (this is the most important ingredient, pls do not subsitute for any other types of yogurt.) 2 garlic gloves, minced 1/2 tsp cumin powder chicken salt/ regular salt to taste
method: mix all together and allow to stand in fridge for an hour for flavours to mingle.
comments: i get asked for this recipe alot...honestly the secret is the greek style yogurt...thick and creamy...not that high in fat too...don't worry.. it's much better than the cheesey dips.. if u r in a rush for time, just combining the greek yogurt and thai chilli sauce is good too...as we discovered at Sik Yin's place the other day!
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
