Moroccan Spiced Yogurt Dip

A homemade dip is the best accompaniment to chips and vegetables. This Moroccan-inspired one, made with yogurt and spiked with cumin, cayenne, cardamom, and coriander, is especially good with fried foods. I particularly like it with fried fish and chicken tenders. It is so easy to make and perfect for entertaining as well as everyday use.
