Tyrokafteri sauce – easy to make, delicious to taste
Ok, ok, lets be serious…you know it…I know it…we all know it! There has been at least one time in your life where you have been alone in the house and had some food and the only thing you wanted was a kind of sauce… something to dip.
Just anything! But you didn’t…. L
Ok ok caaaaaaaaalm down…that’s why we are here! That’s what we are going to do….we are going to save the moment …once again!
The following is recipe for a sauce called Tyrokafteri. The direct translation to that is…hmmm…I guess spice cheese. To be honest you will see it with different names across the web but …for now let’s settle with that…tyrokafteri or…greek spice cheese dip.
- 250gr of Greek Yogurt
- 2 roasted sweet peppers
- 1 green pepper
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 250 gr of Feta Cheese
- 1/2 tea spoon of paprika
- 1/2 tea spoon of oregano
- 1 tea spoon of vinegar
- 1 chilli pepper sliced (or more if you want)
The process is really simple to be honest. Just mix everything on the mixer and serve. Ideally you can add more ingredients depending on your taste.
As I said those may vary in different areas of Greece or in the Balkans also. Despite that, those are the basic ones for a quite good amount of tyrokafteri.
So how would we do the tyrokafteri?
Make sure that it has a creamy look and serve it with…more or less everything you want. Ideally as you put the ingredients you want to keep tasting it so you are sure that it doesn’t become too much or less spicy for your likings.
Usually tyrokatferi was a typical dip when I was going to my grandmother and had any meat related food… but you can easily use it as a dip with chips or just pita bread. Well, i hope you will like it….but if you dont! There is always tzatziki !
p.s. try adding yogurt or tobasco ..the variations as always dont have any limit..but the basic ingredients are those.
