All gour­mands will nod in af­fir­ma­tion that life is too short to eat bor­ing food. Es­pe­cially dur­ing mon­soons, when we crave for pako­das, samosas, tor­tillas, fahi­tas and other crunchies to ac­com­pany our daily dose of tea. And, scrump­tious dips is what makes these snacks tastier. Ditch your reg­u­lar ketchup and mint chut­ney, as city chefs have put to­gether easy-to-make, mouth­wa­ter­ing dips’ recipes for you.


For this fin­ger-lick­ing good dip, heat 2tbsp olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add 1/4cup onion (minced), 3tbsp ginger (grated) and 3 cloves of gar­lic (minced) and cook for 3 min­utes. Add 1tsp vine­gar and 1 cin­na­mon stick. Cook fur­ther for a minute. Now, add a bowl of diced toma­toes and 1tsp cumin. Re­duce the heat to low, cook un­til the mix­ture gets thick. Then, add 1tbsp honey and sea­son with salt and pep­per. Blend the mix­ture, and serve. — Chef Param­preet Luthra, Hotmess
