The difference between these 2 recipes is time and time! Raw will take a lot more time, but if you prefer your dip to not be cooked, then the description is to the right!
one half will go in the blender and the other will either be garnish or mixed in to the final product.
(Don't be alarmed if you have more onions than in this picture. I made a small batch this day)
You want a thick pate, not a pourable texture, so add a little water if needed. This is best accomplished with a food processor or the type of blender that I have called the Nija. It has 6 blades as opposed to just on the bottom like traditional blenders, so it acts like a food processor.
