Our Madras Dip Mix is a fusion of South Indian and Northern California flavors. The first time people try the dip, they usually smile and say something like, "This is nice!" It’s not spicy, but warm and comforting. Delicious made with mayo and sour cream and served with fresh veggies (pictured) or chips (pictured). The India spice blend is typically used to season lentil soup, so this is a whole new way to use it. If you’re looking for an original summer appetizer that everyone will love, this is it.
