Yogurt Garlic Sauce





10 min


Yogurt garlic sauce is often known as Tatzaki sauce and is a marvelous combination of thick greek yogurt and chopped cucumbers with garlic and lemon juice. Its a perfect dip to be served with sandwiches or BBQ.


  • 1 cup ‏Greek yogurt/ thick regular yogurt
  • 1 ‏garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons ‏lemon juice
  • 1 ‏cucumber, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon ‏fresh dill/mint,
  • 1/4 teaspoon ‏salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ‏black pepper


  1. Add yogurt in a sieve and place the sieve over a bowl. Wait for 5-10 min. After 10 min you will have the thick yogurt you want and discard the liquid from the bowl.
  2. Meanwhile remove the seeds of the cucumber and cut into small pieces ( we need to remove the seeds to keep the sauce thick).
  3. Add cucumber in a colander and use a spoon to draw out excess water.
  4. Now in a food processor add cucumber, garlic, lemon juice, salt, black pepper and dill (discard the thick part of dill). Process until smooth.
  5. Mix this mixture with yogurt and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to develop.
