Greece’s yogurt-based sauce called tzatziki reminds me of this condiment. A cooling balance to fiery curries, it is very common in north Indian home kitchens. If you decide to make your own yogurt (see box), it will be even tastier.


  • cups plain yogurt, whisked
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher or sea salt


Thoroughly combine all the ingredients in a medium-size bowl. Serve chilled or at room temperature. This will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
