Spicy Spinach and Yogurt Dip

Spicy Spinach and Yogurt Dip
Recipe By: Bahar

About this Recipe:

Bahar: Spicy spinach and yogurt dip. For those who like it hot and spicy. Feel free to reduce the amount of spices for a milder taste. I found the original recipe in Najaf Darya-Bandari's cook book in Persian (Ketab-e mostatab-e ashpazi, az sir ta piaz).

Main Ingredients:

Spinach: 1 package frozen (about 1 pound)
Yogurt: 3 cups
Ground cumin: 3 tsp
Cayenne pepper: 1 tsp
Ground fenugreek seed: 1 tsp*
Mustard seed: 1/2 tsp (use the paste if you can't find the seeds)**
Salt: 1/4 tsp (or to taste)
Vegetable oil: 1 tbsp


1. Cook the frozen spinach according to the package instruciton. Drain the excess water completely.

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low. Add ground cumin, cayenne pepper,

ground fenugreek seed and mustard seed, swril and mix for 10 seconds.

3. In a medium bowl, mix together the spinach, fried spices, yogurt and salt.

4. Chill until serving.

*,**: You can leave one or both of these spices out if you don't have them in your kitchen. You won't get exactly the same dish at the end though.
