With summers approaching, yogurt is again back as an accompaniment to meals. There are several ways of making interesting dips with yogurt. One of such interesting dips is Beet Yogurt Dip. This is also a tasty way of incorporating Beets in everyday meals. Beet Yogurt Dip has such appealing colour imparted by boiled beets that even kids are tempted to try without being forced to. Mustard, asafetida and curry leaf tempering imparts a unique flavour to the dish.
