shall I venture in yogurth sauce ?????

It's  some days I often think I should try making a whatever sauce using my homemade yogurth but always end eating it with fruits.
I think I would start by crashing garlic in the mortar, with salt and then add mint, evo oil and drained yogurth at the end ...... what more???? and to go with what cucumber maybe, I must find  the moment when all ingredients ask me to go into the sauce before I eat them separately

help, suggestions, experiences, different tastes, real tsted recipes, are welcome, but above all homemade kitchen experiments wink  big_smile  think  cool

I like this blend for savory yogurt sauces for fish - yogurt, garlic, cilantro/coriander leaves, green onion/scallions, cucumber, lemon juice.

Some people salt and drain the chopped cucumber, but I usually don't bother since we eat the sauce immediately.

Re: shall I venture in yogurth sauce ?????

This is a recipe for tzatziki - it's wonderful served with grilled meat dishes, as a spread for bread, and I even like to put it on my rice.

Make sure to strain your yogurt well in a cheese cloth.  Also, grate one cucumber, no seeds.  Put it in a colander and stir in some salt.  Let it sit and then strain that well in a cheese cloth.  This is important because if you don't strain it it will make your yogurt sauce very watery.  Add as much finely grated raw garlic as you can handle.

The big secret that many people seem to forget is olive oil and red wine vinegar, plenty of both.  And don't forget to season with salt.

Furthermore I like to add herbs.  My favorite is fresh mint.  You can add parsley, and dill with scallions is very common in greek food.

Oh, and if you're looking for new things to do with yogurt besides fruit, have you tried eating it with honey and almonds?  It's the food of the gods.

Ready your post has made me think about getting out my yogurt machine, I have had mixed success with it, the children say they don't like it because its "grainy", should i strain it, if so how.

Thanks  Gem

Re: shall I venture in yogurth sauce ?????

grazie  all of you for encouraging me with wise tips  big_smile
- children always have something to say with homemade versus bought things, but later when the food you ususally do becomes familiar they discover it's much better than ....... go on experimenting Earthmum, sieve it with a linen on a colander in the fridge, if you like, do it without machine and enjoy it, I bought 1 lt milk just now to make it again
and honey and almonds must be heaven thumbsup
