Take all the ingredients (except lemon) in a mixer jar and grind them well. Squeeze the lemon and mix it well. The dip is ready.

Corn Patty

After a lot of thinking over what should be my first recipe I though that since breakfast is the first and most important meal of the day, I should start with the same. So here's my quick recipe for corn patty or tikki as we call it in Hindi.

250 gms boiled potatoes
100 gms grated cottage cheese
50 gms sweeet corn
1 tspn finely chopped greeen cilly
1 tspn finely chopped ginger
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

Peel and mash the potatoes, add all the ingredients, mix well and make round patties. Heat oil in a pan and fry the patties till they turn golden. Serve hot with green chutney (recipe for that will follow).
