This is one of the jewels I picked up from Kurma Dasa. This phenomenal raw vegan dip is right up there in my top 5 dips of all time. BIG statement. But true! It is a fantastic example of the “blend and chow in under 5 minutes” philosophy. It is so quick and easy, bursting with flavor, and incredibly versatile. Another added bonus is that the flavor mix is really different from your hog standard store bought dips, and makes a unique addition to the nibble plate at your next dinner.
This “chutney” originates from the South of India. It has a beautiful, rich, creamy texture – you will fool even the most dairy addicted foodie. This is a fantastic “butter” or spread for rice cakes, toast, pita bread, flat bread for wraps, tortilla chips, corn cakes, or veggie sticks. You can also thin this dip out with extra water, and it makes a fantastic creamy dairy free salad dressing. This will keep in the fridge for a few days. This recipe is a quickie staple in my repertoire, and I have never had a disappointed snout. In fact, this would be one of my most requested and remembered recipes.
This was once a favourite of mine in vege kebabs. The traditional version sometimes has yoghurt which I have substituted here with brazil nuts although you could easily use cashews or macadamias or omit them all together if you are looking for a nut free version.
Perfect with celery sticks, cucumber slices or flax crackers, delicious with salad stuffed into a large leaf of romaine and great on it's own as a soup if you add a little extra water.
