Baked Aloo Tikki with Yogurt Chive Dipping Sauce

It’s still a little cold but spring is just around the corner. Last summer, we planted a vegetable garden and grew peppers, basil, oregano and tomatoes. We couldn’t save our lawn last year but we will try to fix it this year. We have a lot of garlic chives growing in our backyard. I guess they’re just wild and grow everywhere. The husband and me were trying to identify all the weeds in our yard and discovered the chives. They smelled so fragrant and it was cool because we had recently watched a show about René Redzepi, the head chef of Noma and an avid forager. I wanted to use the chives in a recipe and decided to make this simple yogurt based sauce with chives and other ingredients.
