Yogurt Fennel Dip
Light and healthy dip
Posted On: May, 13 | Author: Savita
Fennel Seeds are very commonly used in Indian Cuisine. We add it to Chai Masala to make spiced tea, add powder seeds to curries to enhance flavor and even dry roast fennel seeds to chew after heavy meals because fennel is excellent mouth freshener and helps in digestion too. I personally love its liquorish taste and floral fragrance. Since fennel seeds are so commonly used at my home, few days’ back I bought fennel root with leaves for salads. Though we had fennel bulb in salad, for my love of fennel fragrance, I decided to utilize fennel leaves in quick yogurt dip. I prepared a bowl of fennel raita or Fennel Dip with yogurt for grilled chicken dinner yesterday night. We finished whole bowl with fresh veggies like carrots, celery, broccoli. I think it is perfect vegetarian substitute to mayo based dips and is healthy for kids and an excellent healthy crowd pleaser.

ChefDeHome@Satinder , I also enjoy this dip often as raita. Infact, one more variation is to make sweet and sour Raita. Add raisins and fennel bulb and leaves chopped. Best with Samosas or Aloo Paranthas. I am sure you will like this variation too.
Satinder RandhawaChefdehome, i tried your fennel dip with steamed rice yesterday, excellent change from regular raita that we make at home. I added some diced red onion for crunch.....
