Mint Raita (Yoghurt) - 2
Pudina Raita - 2
This quick sauce is for serving with Tandoori dishes and with anything where you would normally serve English Mint Sauce, like with roast lamb. Indian restaurants in UK often serve it with their tandoori dishes. The amounts are very approximate. Make it to suit your taste.
2 tbs. of Mint Sauce, also available ready-made in UK
1 cup or a carton of yoghurt or dahi
Salt to taste. Try adding at least 50% black salt or kala namak for a better flavour.
1/2 tsp. dry roasted and coarsely ground cumin seeds (optional)
If the yoghurt is too thick, dilute it to a sauce consistency with a little milk.
Add mint sauce, salt and cumin and mix well. It is ready to serve.
If you like, you can add 1/2 roast and coarsely ground cumin seeds and a little salt.
