Farari/Farali yogurt dip with coconut

On the days Hindus fast, there is a list of foods that they are “allowed” to eat. The list – often referred to as farali (or farari)  food – includes all the fruits and nuts, milk and milk products including yogurt. It also includes potatoes, sweet potatoes, cassava, tapiaco, ragigara, Morio and amaranth etc…. In fact, the sumptuous delicacies you can eat in place of everyday food makes you feel that you are having a feast because of the variety you can make.

Whenever I am fasting, I like to make sure that we have some tasty condiments as a side as the farali/farari dishes we make often have very few spices.  This yogurt dip is  very easy to make.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Greek style Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons desiccated coconut
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 green chili chopped
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • a few strands of coriander

Method:

1. Transfer the yogurt to a mixing bowl.
2. Add in the desiccated coconut , salt, pepper, sugar, chilies, coriander and mix
3. Transfer this to a serving dish and garnish it with some black pepper.  Keep it cool in the fridge until ready to serve with any dish and specially a farari (farali) dish.

If you are not fasting and fancy a spicier yogurt dip try the following dips:

  1. Cucumber Wasabi Yogurt Dip
  2. Yogurt and Mint Dip
  3. Coconut, chillies and Yogurt chutney/dip
