Few months back, my sister, who lives in US had brought some spices that she bought during her visit to Turkey. I wanted to use them, but till now couldn’t get a chance.

tzaziki sauce

When I was looking for some dishes under Lebanese cuisine, I came across a dip… Tzatziki. It reminded me of that pack of spices that also contained tzatziki mix. I immediately decided to make it.

Tzatziki is a cool and creamy yoghurt based sauce or dip that makes an excellent addition to Mezze platter. What all you need to make this delicious dip is refreshing cucumber, creamy n thick yoghurt, tangy lemon, some garlic and chopped dill. This dip has to be really thick, for that yoghurt should be strained through a muslin cloth and grated cucumber should be squeezed hard to drain all it’s moisture. As far spices are concerned, it just needs salt and pepper to prep up it’s taste. Since I had tzatziki mix, so used that also (though I don’t know the components of that mix). When the chilled dip was served with pita, it tasted so good that the bowl of tzatziki was finished in minutes.
