Dipping Sauce

  • 12 cup golden raisins
  • 34 teaspoon Frontier® Organic Turmeric
  • 34 teaspoon Frontier® Organic Garam Masala (or to taste)
  • 12 teaspoon Frontier® Organic Ground Ginger
  • 12 teaspoon Frontier® Organic Garlic Powder
  • 14 teaspoon Frontier® Organic Cayenne Pepper (or to taste, optional)

Note: Frontier® Co-op has provided this recipe as a suggestion for your use based on commonly available ingredients understood to be "vegetarian," which we define as not including any meat, fish, seafood or any products derived from them or any other part of an animal. This recipe may include animal by-products such as eggs, dairy, honey and substances derived from them. Please review the recipe carefully to determine your personal preference.


  1. Soak the bamboo skewers or rosemary stems in water for 1 hour (unnecessary if using metal skewers).
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. If using the rosemary stems, use a skewer to poke "pilot" holes through the sides of each wedge.
  4. In a large bowl, toss the beets with the oil, cinnamon, salt and pepper.
  5. Place three beet wedges on each skewer or stem, and arrange in neat rows in a casserole dish. Roast on the top shelf of the oven for 20 minutes or to desired doneness. Meanwhile, place the raisins and all the spices in a mortar and pestle or food processor and grind to a paste. Add the lemon juice, mix, and then add the yogurt. Mix thoroughly, taste and adjust for salt and white pepper.
  6. Remove the skewers from the oven and serve immediately with the sauce either in a bowl, on the side or drizzled over top.
