Minty Yogurt Sauce for Tamiya/Tameya

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Sunday, September 06, 2015

I have tried minty yogurt sauce, like turkish cacik and the minty dip served with bolani before, but with tahini in it, this is the first time. The Original recipe didn't have green chili and coriander but, since i had less mint i added some coriander too for that greeny touch. This is one of the best sauce to dip your falafel or any appetizer for that matter. This can also be used as a spread for your sandwich or wraps, the list is endless and also it is pretty easy to prep, go grab your stuff and try this!!!
Inspired from The Guardian
1 cup plain yogurt
3 tbsp tahini
2 garlic cloves, 
1 green chilli
Juice of ½ lemon
Salt  to taste
2 tbsp chopped mint
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
1/4 cup of water

  • Blitz together garlic, mint, coriander and green chillies, in a mixer to a coarse paste.  Whisk the coarse paste with the yogurt, tahini, salt and lemon juice.

  3. I can get the aroma of the mint right here...and I love that's beautiful.

  4. That is one refreshing and tasty sauce.
