Also referred to as Ktipiti, referring to the process of taking the feta in a bowl and “hitting it” or whisking it into this delicious dip. There are many variations of this dip throughout Greece depending on the region. But the main ingredient is of course Feta cheese.
The other ingredients are hot peppers, or roasted red peppers, olive oil, lemon, and Greek yogurt.
To make it easy for my friends around the world, I have adapted this recipe using Cayenne pepper which is easily available everywhere. You can also use Kashmiri chili powder, or any other red hot pepper depending on your taste buds.
This recipe is easy because you add everything to the food processor and just blend, chill and serve. I also add crumbled feta after I process the dip to give it additional texture and depth.
