  • 1/2 tsp white pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs

For the salsa

  • 2 tbsp finely chopped cucumber
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped tomatoes
  • 1-2 chopped green chillies
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped basil leaves
  • 1/2 tbsp finely chopped chives
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt to taste (optional)

Instructions

  • To begin, prepare the cream cheese. Mix together hung curd, grated cheese, garlic powder, white pepper powder, salt, and mixed herbs until smooth and fluffy.
  • For the salsa, mix together the vegetables – tomatoes, capsicum, cucumber, and green chillies. Season it with chopped basil, chives, and lemon juice. Mix well. Add a bit of salt if required.

Notes

  • Experiment with different veggies for the salsa topping.
  • The salsa does not really need salt but you can add it if required. Ensure that the salsa does not sit for too long or the tomatoes will turn mushy.
  • You can prepare the salsa in advance. Once you have placed it on the crackers, serve immediately or the crackers will turn soggy.
