Dip, dip, dip

This is the recipe for a very simple dip that Theron and me tried last weekend. We had it with baked potates, but it can be used with chips, chops, pakodas, rotis, as raita, or just eat it with a spoon. Its YUMMY. The recipe uses yogurt which is very nutritious too!!

2 cups of plain lowfat yogurt (you can use non-fat/regular depending on your taste or calorie restrictions)

1/2 bunch fresh cilantro (dhania leaves)
1 bunch green onions (pyaz-kali)

chop. chop. chop the green onions, and cilantro.
beat the yogurt with a fork to make it smooth. add the cilantro, green onions and mix.
Add salt, ground black pepper to taste.

Optional: In case you want to make it less healthy and more tasty (say for a party), replace 1 cup yogurt with 1 cup sour cream, or use full fat cream-topped yogurt.
Feeling more experimental: add finely chopped red bell peppers, shredded carrots, or any such shredded crunchy vegetable.
