  • 200 g Greek yogurt 10% fat
  • 100 ml Cream 30% fat
  • 100 g Quark
  • 1 piece Cucumber
  • 1 tsp Dill (fresh or freeze-dried)
  • 0,5 tsp Roshni chili powder
  • 1 tsp Amchur powder
  • Phu Quoc pepper
  • Salt
  • 1 piece Clove of garlic (optional)
  • 1 tsp Chives (for garnish)


  • First mix the yoghurt, quark and cream in a bowl until the desired consistency is achieved - if it is too firm, just add a little cream, if it is too runny add a little quark.
  • Now cut the cucumber in half and remove the core. Then grate the cucumber on a grater or cut it very, very finely and let it drain briefly in a colander; then add to the quark-yoghurt-cream mixture and stir in.
  • If you want the tzatziki with garlic, finely chop the cloves, 1-2 pieces, depending on your taste, until it has a mushy consistency (can also be made in a blender) and add to the mixture.
  • Add the spices to taste - try again and again. In the variant without garlic, the proportion of chilli must be slightly higher.
  • In the best case scenario, let everything steep overnight and garnish with some fresh chives before serving.
