Use dips in an innovative way to give a delicious twist to snacks.
Naresh Guglani, corporate chef, Del Monte Foods, reveals how to prepare lip-smacking dips:
* Cocktail dip: Blend half and half of mayonnaise and tomato ketchup, throw-in handful of chopped jalapenos or coarsely crushed chili to taste. Pair it with hot cutlets, fish fingers or potato wedges.
* Aioli dip: Add crushed garlic and chopped fresh parsley to mayonnaise to make this dip. Enjoy this dip with fries, wedges or garlic bread.
* Coriander-mint chutney dip: Blend in a cup of homemade coriander-mint chutney with two cups of mayonnaise. Use it with kebabs and tikkas or simply as a spread in sandwiches, wraps and rolls.
* Tartare dip: Mayonnaise works very well as a base for other dips like tartare. Just add chopped gherkins, parsley and dash of lemon juice and its zest for a delicious version of your own tartare dip. Pair it with onion rings, fish fingers, chips and fries or cheese poppers.
