Tzatziki sauce & # 8211 authentic Greek recipe
Sos tzatziki? At any time, I say present! Whether I eat it as such, next to a steak of chicken or pork, baked or fried potatoes, in salads with chicken, shaorma, gyros, or simply with some homemade sticks or cakes, tzatziki sauce is always delicious, creamy, even refreshing.
Did you know that the original Greek tzatziki sauce recipe is made using sheep's or goat's milk yogurt? However, the origin of the word "tzatziki" comes from the Turkish word "cacik", meaning "oriental" chatni sauces, which contain spices and finely chopped fresh vegetables.
Tzatzki sauce has been my favorite for several years, when I discovered it in a tavern in Greece.
The good news is that I don't have to go "to the Greeks" to eat a delicious tzatziki sauce. I can make it at home in just 5 minutes!
See below what ingredients you need and how to prepare them.

Tzatziki yogurt sauce with cucumber and garlic
Tzatziki yogurt sauce with cucumber and garlic. Tzatziki (tsatsiki) & # 8211 Greek yogurt sauce & # 8211 family favorite summer sauce! Greek yogurt, fresh cucumbers, garlic. It is so creamy, refreshing and fragrant! I've been making it for years and I accompany it with steaks and grilled meat or vegetables. It is made in two strokes and three movements and contains cheap ingredients, available to everyone. Not to mention the tzatziki to buy from the store because it has nothing to do with the original one!
Tzatziki (I saw it written and "tza tzi chi" although not Chinese) is of Greek origin and is made from fatty yogurt (min 10% fat). There are opinions on the internet that say that the original tzatziki does not contain mint or lemon juice and peel and that it is not made with a mixture of yogurt + sour cream. I say it's a matter of taste and it matters too little for loved ones if it's the original recipe as long as they like it. So I put a drop of lime juice (because I didn't have lemon in the house). I like the fragrant-sour note this time. If you do not have Greek yogurt at hand, you can combine normal yogurt (with 4-5% fat) with fermented cream (min 19% fat). If the yogurt looks watery, it would be good to drain it so as not to get a too fluid tzatziki.
Another observation would be the draining and squeezing of the cucumber pieces thoroughly before putting them in the tzatziki. They can also be grated on a large grater, but I cut them with sticks (with a special grater) to feel the pieces through the sauce.
It is worth making double portions of this Tzatziki sauce because it keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days in a hermetically sealed container and is very good cold. My people also like this sauce with bread. They take their # 8222vadra & # 8221 out of the fridge and eat it with pita corners :).
