I had got this recipe from one of our friends and simply loved it. It is a must starter at any of our get together as home, especially during Christmas holidays. Very simple with the ingredients, I use more of yogurt as a base in this dip rather than sour cream. Since this doesn’t have any use of spices and herbs, this sure is a hit with kids !! Unlike the one in restaurant where it is baked with topped cheese, this is just simple raw spinach combined with yogurt, sour cream, mayonnaise and some seasoning. I love to add maggi masala or any chutneys with flax seeds, peanuts or chana dal or use any of your favorite seasonings!! This goes to the No Cook event at PJ's blog.
1 cup frozen spinach or 2 cups fresh spinach, washed, chopped
1/2 cup yogurt
1/8 cup sour cream
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp seasoning (chutney/maggi masala)
salt to taste
pinch of sugar
1. Wash and finely chop the spinach.
2. in a bowl, combine spinach, yogurt, sour cream and mayonnaise.
3. Add salt, sugar and any seasoning* of you choice and whisk for few seconds. (Most often I use the maggi masala seasoning or dry chutneys. Use any seasoning of your choice)
4. Serve with bread or chips.
Preparation Time: 10 mins
Note: If there is any leftover dip, use it as a dressing on salad greens !!! The salad will taste awesome !
