Making dips yourself is not hard at all and is a great way to make sure they aren’t bad for you (or at least not that bad for you). This dish is brought to a whole new level with the addition of crispy shallots.
1 garlic clove
- ¾ cup plain whole milk yogurt (not Greek)
- 1 Tbsp. garam masala
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 Persian cucumber
- ½ cup pomegranate seeds (a.k.a. “arils”)
- ½ cup store-bought fried shallots or onions
- 1 7-oz. bag pita chips
Using a microplane, finely grate 1 garlic clove into a small bowl, add ¾ cup yogurt, 1 Tbsp. garam masala, and 1 tsp. salt and stir with a spoon to combine. Finely chop 1 cucumber and gently stir into yogurt.
Top cucumber yogurt with ½ cup pomegranate seeds and ½ cup fried shallots. Serve with pita chips alongside.
