* Garlic Yoghurt Dip

Garlic gives a delicious taste to all sorts of food be it naan, dips, parathas, curries or anything. To make this refreshing and appetising dip, one has to take some Parmesan cheese and some lemon juice to give it a zesty and refreshing flavour.

This is why it is always nice to pair a good refreshing dip with fried food that compliments its dryness and doesn't make one extremely dehydrated.

* Cucumber Yoghurt Dip

Cucumber yoghurt dip is also extremely hydrating and refreshing. It is a perfect dip for summer when one needs that extra dose of refreshment and hydration. Both of the ingredients are very light and can be used to make this scrumptious dip. One will also need some fresh dill to make the dip.

To give the dip some extra flavours, a person may add herbs of their choice.
