Indian Spiced Onion Dip

A sour cream-based onion dip is a classic Western snack. Usually some garlic, a little lemon, some onion and green onion salt and pepper mixed in with sour cream makes for a delicious sauce. Well, Master Indian has trialed a few spice mixes to make this classic snack into a delicious novelty that your friends will love. Here is the recipe:


Indian Spiced Onion Dip Ingredients


1/2 medium-sized onion fine, diced

3-4 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp olive oil or butter

1 cup sour cream

2 tsp coriander seed

1 tsp cumin seed

1 cardamom pod (optional)

1/8 tsp carom seed or ajwain (optional)

1/2 tsp feunugreek leaves or kasoori methi (optional) 

1-3 tsp Indian red chili (since this dish is dairy-based, it will moderate the spiciness of the chili)

Juice of 1/2 lemon salt to taste

Indian Spiced Onion Dip Method

1. Over medium heat, melt the butter or heat the olive oil, grind your whole spices

2. Let spices simmer in oil over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant

3. Add diced onion and minced garlic and cook for 10-15 minutes until transparent. Add oil if necessary

4. Once onion/garlic/spices are cooked, remove from heat and add lemon juice. Stir with spatula until deglazed (until any film left from the cooking of onions and spices is gone from the bottom of the pot)

5. Add to 1 cup sour cream, along with red chili, fenugreek leaves and salt. Garnish with red chili and a pinch of fenugreek leaves. Enjoy!
