Quick Recipe: Simple Indian Dressing

One of the larger cornerstone ingredients in Indian cuisine is yogurt. Not the sugary, granola-laden dessert versions we enjoy here in America, but just plain-ass regular yogurt. It gets used for marinating meats, is turned into drinks like kefir, and can also be used as a condiment. Lately I put together this simple little recipe that sprang out of my love for burritos and curry. Surely, those two can’t combine, right? Well actually they do quite well. For anyone from the Long Island area, we recommend the hell out of a little hole in the wall that serves Indian-Mexican fusion, Taco Express in Selden, NY (ignore the handful of bad reviews complaining about service, we’ve never had any problems).

Anyway, this particular recipe is for a quick little dressing that does a good job of bringing that delicious, warm curry flavor to the table without requiring a ton of time or effort. Eat it on rice, in burritos, on sandwiches, salads, etc… It’s delicious and goes well with almost anything!


Simple Indian Dressing

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp lime juice (substitute lemon juice)
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cracked/ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Serve cold. Can keep in the fridge for up to two weeks!

Save your extra in a condiment cup to feel super savvy.

If you have curry paste on hand, you could also make Meg’s curry dipping sauce.
