Silky, smooth and creamy, that is the Sour Cream and Mushroom Dip.
At first you taste the silkiness of the sour cream and then the mushroom flavour hits as an after taste. Very interesting ! Apparently the flavour combination is classical of Russian cuisine, though not necessarily as a dip.
The tangy flavour of the sour cream combined with the woody mushroom flavour gives this dip a twist of flavours !! It almost feels butter in your mouth ofcourse without guilt. It pairs well with raw vegetables like cucumbers, carrots, radish.
