Healthy Party Dip Recipes



When it comes to parties, use these party dip recipes to start the servings. Normally for a party we keep ourselves fixed to chutnies, pickles and curd dips. But making these low-cal dip recipes with sticks of raw vegetables and fruits teases the palate and is a healthier option too.

Use these Dips Recipes as Starters for your party. People are increasingly filling up on Starters instead of the main courseat parties, so healthy bites with slim-down dips are becoming the mainstay.

Lentils are becoming the main ingredient in dips. Now you even have rajma and masoor dal dips, which have a curry flavour or a sambar masala tempering that goes with roast chappati triangles.
