Tzaziki/Chachik


Tzaziki is a traditional Greek dip which is made from cucumber and yogurt.It could be an accompaniment to food or a salad also.I had seen this recipe in Master chef Australia and had tried it in 2010.It was yummy

Cac─▒k is a turkish form of dip which is a variation of Greek tzatziki,


Ingredients
yogurt (Supposed to be from goat's milk but u can try cow/buffalo milk too),
cucumber,
salt,
garlic peeled and finely chopped,
mint
honey
olive oil
lemon

Peel the cucumbers and grate it corsely on to a tray covered with a clean cloth so the liquid from the cucumber can drain in to the tray. Then sprinkle it with the salt and allow to sit for about 5 minutes. The extra liquid will get separated..so now squeeze it and transfer in a mixing bowl
Add the yogurt,garlic,lemon and honey.Season with mint leaves

Cool it in fridge before serving
