A few months ago I posted a recipe for Super Garlicky Yogurt Sauce.  Since then, I’ve used the sauce almost every day… on potatoes, noodles and veggies.

But any food, even a yummy one, gets boring if it’s eaten too often. Because of that, I’ve done a little experimenting, and  I’ve come up with a delicious and simple variation. I call it Onion-Yogurt Sauce.

So far, I’ve only used the Onion-Yogurt Sauce as a topping for burritos, both plain and mixed with salsa. Both ways were great.

Next, I’m looking forward to trying a dollop as a garnish for my bean soup. I’m guessing the result will be wonderful.

Note: I tried this sauce with broccoli and it was delicious!

    This looks very close to the Indian dish called Raita. We make it without the oil and vary it depending on what veggie we’re using it in the yogurt.
    It can be made with onions like you showed or with grated carrots or boiled smashed potatoes or my fav grated cucumber. We also season it with red chilli powder and roasted cumin seeds.
    I love it in all its variations.

    Raita was my inspiration for all the yogurt sauces I’ve been making lately. I first tried it with the cucumber, but didn’t enjoy it, so I started making up my own versions. I’ll try it will the red chili powder and cumin. That sounds delicious!
