Celery Root Remoulade "Lite"

Print  Friendly and PDF
In the previous post, I had asked what the Mystery vegetable was in the Yogurt Sauce. No it isn't cabbage or cucumber. It is Celery Root. Celery root is considered as an ugly duckling of the vegetable family. Ugly and knobby it might look but it tastes divine with its clean taste and potato-like texture. For this recipe, I have made a lighter version of the Remoulade(Mayonnaise based condiment) with plenty of Yogurt and very little Mayo. Vegetarians who don't care for Mayo can go ahead and substitute with Sour cream and enjoy this wonderful condiment.
Ingredients:
  • Celery Root - 1, small, peeled and shredded
  • Dill - 1 tbsp
  • Cold and Thick Yogurt - 3 cups, whipped
  • Mayo or Sour Cream - 3 tbsp
  • Garlic - 3 cloves, minced
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp or more
  • Walnuts - 1/2 cup, toasted and roughly chopped
Procedure:
  • In a large bowl add the all the ingredients except the walnuts.
  • Mix it gently to evenly incorporate.
  • Move it to a serving bowl and garnish with toasted walnuts.
  • Serve it chilled as a side to Pilaf, Biryani or even with Roti(Flat Breads)
Enjoy!

  27. I am not a fan of celery, I think root of celery taste will be different.
    Regarding the rye bread it slightly sour taste so it good with soup and sandwich. If you want to have it jam of jelly, you need to try Swedish rye bread which is sweeter side.
