Cottage Cheese - Spicy Tomato Dip

BM #72 Week 2 Day 1 -

For the second week of this edition, I have chosen the theme 'Dips, Spreads or Chutneys'. For Day 1, I tried this simple dip which we loved with vegetables.

Ingredients - 

Cottage Cheese 1/2 cup
Onion, chopped 2 Tbsp
Tomato , chopped 1/4 cup
Salt, Green chili as needed
Olive Oil 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp

Cottage Cheese - Spicy Tomato Dip

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, add oil and cumin seeds. After the seeds crackle, saute the onions for a couple of minutes.

Add in the tomatoes and green chilies. Sprinkle salt and let the tomatoes get mushy.

Remove and allow it to cool.

In a processor add the tomato mixture and the cottage cheese and blend until creamy.

Scoop out the dip and serve with vegetables of your choice or chips or crackers. We enjoyed the dip with Carrots and Celery.


Preparation Time 15 minutes
Serves 3-4
