Cheese is awesome. Dips are awesome. Combine the two and life couldn’t get better! This cheesy yogurt dip is finger licking and bowl licking delicious. We like to say it’s healthy because it has yogurt in it, and barely any cheese. It still gets quite a cheesy flavor because we use a strong Parmesan. This dip is best served cold with crunchy chips, cucumber, carrot, celery and even tomatoes.
You need some hung curd, mayonnaise, Parmesan, salt, pepper and a sprinkling of chopped spring onion. You make the hung curd by taking regular curd and literally ‘hanging’ it in a fine muslin/cheese cloth till all the water drips out and you’re left with a ball of thick, creamy yogurt (curd). You should hang it overnight, or at least 2 hours. If you don’t have Parmesan you could use any other DRY cheese. A soft cheese like the regular Amul Processed Cheese won’t really work for this (but we do have another cheesy dip recipe which uses processed cheese which we’ll put up soon). Now the spices, we went with simple salt and pepper for this dip, but you can add whatever you like – dried herbs, fresh herbs, chili flakes, Dijon mustard; the options are endless.
Simply mix all the ingredients together and add salt to taste. Sprinkle some chopped spring onion on top and you’re done!
