RICOTTA CILANTRO CHILLI DIP...PURE' DESI TASTE

Yesterday I came across some lovely Himalayan organic ricotta, made locally, otherwise good cheese is difficult to come by in most parts of India except for Delhi I think where you can get a good variety of local as well as imported cheese.The first thing that came into mind was to make a simple,refreshing summer dip, which we munched piled high on to with crackers, veggies and good ole' potato crisps...



  • Ricotta cheese- 200 gms

  • Onion-1 medium chopped fine

  • Green chillies- 2 deseeded and sliced

  • Cilantro- a handful, chopped

  • Fresh, tender ginger- 1 tbsp ,chopped fine

  • Salt and black pepper to taste


Combine all the ingredients well in a large bowl, garnish with more cilantro, serve.Taste the dip you will feel an explosion of all the lovely fresh flavors in your mouth..totally Indian, totally desi, totally us!

I love dips with veggies and crackers. Guess it is time to make homemade ones.

Hi Bindiya,

While researching for a new play I am doing, I was looking for Kashmiri cuisine and that is how I chanced upon your blog.

You have written about Kashmiri cuisine in such great detail ! I also like reading about the Kashmiri culture. Thanks a lot :)

Your post about the silver tea-set belonging to your grandmother was very nice.

I have now become a regular reader of your blog...although I haven't tried out any of your recipes though. I'll let you know when I do.

Meanwhile, keep writing !
