I’ve been making dips to go with various dishes today. If you have cooked or eaten with me, you’ll know that I love to make different styles of dips, oozing with flavours.
I try to vary them so they bring different dishes to life and hope that I can cater for all tastes.
Today, I’ve made a fruity tamarind with clementine, adding some sweetness to the dishes they accompany. I’ve also made a spicy fresh chilli sauce, here’s the recipe. http://www.lajinamasala.com/recipe/lajinas-fresh-chilli-sauce/
I’ve made a beetroot raita, simply coarsely grate some fresh beetroot into yoghurt and then add chilli and sugar with a tiny sprinkle of garam masala. It’s lovely and festive, perfect for this time of year.
The point of spicing up everyday dishes using dips is you can please a crowd, adding their favourite flavours, without too many dishes.
Add a little spice to your life this Christmas!
