Herbed Garlic Butter

What is it about flavored butter that gives your bread an extra pep? Butter, the omnipresent breakfast ingredient need not always be monotonous and routine. There’s almost nothing that vamps up a piece of bread like some herbed butter.Making your own batch of this dip is not only easy but also adds oomph to the dining table.

Use it to add zing to sandwiches, spread it on a toasted bread/indian flat bread, enjoy soup-sticks with a liberal glob, tip it in gravy or bite in to grilled & charred veggies with a dash of this creamy delight,  it is sure to whet your appetite.

Go ahead and indulge in this delightful spread

What's in it :-

  • Butter – 100 grams (softened, I used Amul Butter)
  • Cream Cheese – 50 grams (softened)
  • Fresh Coriander Leaves – a few sprigs – finely chopped
  • Mint leaves – a few – finely chopped
  • Lemon juice -1 tsp
  • Garlic – 1 pod – minced
  • Pepper Powder – to taste

The spread can stay fresh for 3-4 days when covered and refrigerated.You can also freeze the dip/spread after adequately covering it in plastic wrap 


Beat together butter & cream cheese till they are fluffy & light.Tip in coriander leaves,mint,lemon juice & garlic. Grind in fresh peppercorn powder to taste & give it a good mix.Cover and refrigerate for atleast 20-25 minutes.Serve as you wish.Enjoy!
