Herbed Yogurt Dip

I have already professed my love for yogurt many times in this blog. I have blogged about 40 different ways in which this yummy yogurt can be cooked. Right from the simple raita to elaborate Paruppu Urundai More Kuzhambu, cooling smoothies to delicious kadhi’s, I love yogurt in any form.

Today I made this simple and creamy yogurt dip with a basil flavor. Reva @ Kaarasaaram  is hosting my event Herbs and Flowers in my platter with the theme - Basil.So this dip was exclusively prepared for the event.

I used:

Plain yogurt [fresh] – 1 cup
Garlic – 1 clove, minced
Fresh Basil – a handful, finely chopped
Salt to taste

A few pomegranate pearls to garnish.[Optional]

  1. Take the yogurt in a sieve lined with cheese cloth, cover and refrigerate till the water has drained completely.
  2. Transfer the yogurt to a bowl and discard the liquid.
  3. To the yogurt, add the chopped basil, minced garlic and salt and mix well.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours for the flavor to blend.
Serve garnished with pomegranate pearls along with chips / crudités
