Chips ‘n Dips

Here’s our next guest chef – Tanvi. A know-it-all gal, she’s an expert on almost everything. Geography, conspiracy theories, good and crappy music, books, travelling and the list continues. However, her love for food and knowledge of the same knows no bound! We present you her recipes of home-made dips!

Chips n Dips

Chips and dips are guaranteed party pleasers. Whether it is a sleepover, or a movie marathon, or simply chilling out with your buddies, everybody LOVES chips and dips! A big bag of chips or a big bowl of fries are gone in no time. To add a lil bit of change, we decided to try out some dips to go with the deep fried awesomeness. You can also dip veggies like carrots and cucumbers or a celery stick in these dips, if you want to serve healthy finger food.

These dips are pretty easy to make. One of them is a simple garlic mayonnaise and the other is a tangy mayonnaise dip. Being vegetarians, we had to look out for a no-egg recipe, but one that would still ensure a creamy, rich dip at the end.
Psst…the dips can also be used as sandwich spreads and / or salad dressings. Enjoy! 🙂

Garlic mayonnaise:


  1. Cream 1 cup
  2. Vegetable / Olive oil ¾ cup
  3. Garlic cloves 3-4, chopped
  4. Lemon juice 1 teaspoon
  5. Black pepper ½ teaspoon
  6. Salt To taste


  1. In a deep container, add the cream, garlic cloves, lemon juice, pepper and salt.
  2. Use a hand blender to mix all these ingredients.
  3. Add the oil, one little spoon at a time while blending the mayonnaise. Do not add the oil too much at a time; it will not thicken the mixture enough.
  4. Whip the mixture till the oil and the cream are blended completely.
  5. Serve with your favourite finger food!

Tangy mayonnaise:


  1. Mayonnaise (Do not add garlic) 1 cup
  2. Tomato ketchup 2 tablespoons
  3. Red chilli sauce / Tabasco sauce 2 tablespoons
  4. Onion ½, finely chopped
  5. Cucumber ½, finely chopped
  6. Black pepper ½ teaspoon
  7. Salt To taste


  1. Mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, chilli sauce / Tabasco in a bowl.
  2. Add the onion and cucumber.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  4. You can add more ketchup if you want an added tang.
  5. Chill the dip for some time, and serve with hot fries, or super crunchy chips!
