Tips & Variations:

  • You can add hearty veggies of your choice like boiled sweet potatoes, bell pepper, avocado.
  • You can also replace cilantro with dill leaves, mint, or parsley.
  • If you have sour cream at home, try replacing 2 tablespoons of greek yogurt with sour cream.
  • If you don't have greek yogurt at home, take regular yogurt and pour it in a muslin cloth and drain the whey for 30 minutes above the kitchen sink.
