That looks mouth watering. I am going to try it once I am off my fast. Usually I don't look at food when fasting, but today well....:D:D

This is definately one of my favorites. I usually add some finely ground up (almost to a powder) cashews for the extra creaminess. It reminds me of the one I used to get at the Indian rest. that had the cubes of cheese in it.

The Indian spinach dip in Alissa's books is so good as well.. I will have to try this one. Thanks for sharing.

Has anyone made any dip like this that calls for spinach substituting for some other green leafy veggie? The reason I ask is that we're supposed to be careful of not overeating spinach apparently (oxalic acid; binds with iron) but other dark greens in other recipes have often turned out bitter for me. Was wondering if anyone had already tried this with something else.
The reason I ask is that I'm between contracts right now and money is very tight. When that's the case, that's the time I least experiment with substitutions, etc., since I simply don't want to run the risk of something not turning out. And dark greens other than spinach I've had some trouble with so wondering if anyone had a dip recipe such as this that called for something other than spinach but that does work.
Thanks so much! Really appreciate it. :)

I haven't tried this recipe yet but I find that romaine lettuce isn't too strong.
