Here's a yogurt snack we love. With just one bite, you’ll see why. Serve this tangy, Indian dip with baked pita chips, warm naan, or fresh veggies such as halved baby carrot sticks, radishes, small celery stalks with leaves, and Belgian endive leaves. You can also thin the dip with a little water and drizzle it over grilled shrimp or chicken. It can easily be doubled or tripled to make more servings. We recommend using Persian cucumbers since their skins are thin and they’re practically seedless. Plus, they’re less watery than other cucumber varieties which contributes to this dip’s ultra-thick consistency.
