  • Hung Curd 1 c
  • Cucumber 1 medium seeds removed, peeled and chopped very finely
  • Garlic cloves 2 peeled and minced
  • Fresh coriander leaves 2 tablespoon chopped finely
  • Lemon juice 1 tbsp
  • Olive oil 2 tbsp
  • Freshly ground black pepper 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • For Garnish
  • Olive oil 1 tsp
  • Freshly ground black pepper 1 tsp


  • To make hung curd, place about 2 c of regular full fat yogurt in a fine mesh strainer. Now place this over a bowl and cover loosely. Let it sit in the fridge until all the whey is drained.
  • Once done, discard whey and use the thick hung curd in the Tzatziki.
  • In a bowl, place all the ingredients and mix well.
  • Garnish with freshly ground black pepper and drizzle some olive oil on top before serving.
  • Serve immediately.


You can use greek yogurt in place of the hung curd here. In that case, no draining of whey is required.
Feel free to experiment with your choice of herbs like dill, mint or parsley in place of coriander leaves.
You can also add finely grated cucumber but how ever you add the cucumber, make sure to remove the seed part before grating or chopping.
Many recipes use Extra Virgin Olive Oil for this but i used regular olive oil.
