Simple Dip Recipes


This Middle Eastern favourite tastes great with a variety of snacks. Despite its wonderful, creamy texture, the dip is low on calories, making it the apt choice for people who love snacking but are also conscious about their health. Enjoy it with pita bread, lavash or fresh vegetables. It can also be used as a spread in a sandwich in combination with veggies of your choice.


2 cups boiled chickpeas

1/4th cup lemon juice

1/4th cup tahini

3-4 garlic cloves, minced

2 tbsp olive oil

Salt to taste

Method: First blend the tahini in a blender to get a smooth, creamy consistency. Keep it aside and move on to the chickpeas. Divide the chickpeas into small batches and blend separately. This is to ensure that you get a smooth consistency and prevent big bits of chickpeas. You can add a few tablespoons of water to get the right texture. Then, simply add all the other ingredients and blend well. Pour some extra virgin olive oil over the hummus while serving. Additionally, if you enjoy spicy food, you can add paprika to the recipe.


A Mexican favourite, salsa is another one of the healthy dips you can whip up at home. It’s best enjoyed with tortilla chips or nachos but can also be served with a variety of fried snacks like nuggets, fries and fritters.


4 tomatoes

1/4 cup finely chopped onions

2 tbsp chopped cilantro

1 tsp crushed jalapeno

2 tbsp fresh lime juice

2 garlic cloves, minced

Salt to taste

Method: Roughly blend the tomatoes in a blender to get a chunky texture. Combine all the other ingredients. You can store this preparation in an airtight container in your refrigerator for 5-6 days.
