Garlic Raita (Yoghurt)
This is a simple side dish for garlic lovers! Mrs. Rastogi is my sister in-law's mum. She is a brilliant cook. Mamta.
1 large carton or 500 gm. or 1 pint natural yoghurt or dahi (use skimmed if you want low fat)
10 cloves garlic (less if large cloves), peeled
1-2 green chillies, to taste
A bunch of coriander leaves (1 cup chopped)
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp. Garam Masala
Chop finely garlic, coriander and green chillies. This can be done together in a food processor.
Fold all ingredients into the yoghurt until evenly mixed. Adjust seasoning.
