Mint Raita / Mint Dip


“Raita” is a cold yogurt condiment and can be used as a sauce or a dip to enhance the flavor of the dish . Raita is often served with Indian dishes like biryani , pulav  , curries etc. to cut the heat of the spicy dishes. Raitas can be prepared with herbs , vegetable , fruits & even pulses . My favorite is the Mint Raita ♥ and I usually find myself dipping chips in it !

Tips:

1) You may add a tablespoon or two of milk or water to make the consistency of the raita thinner. I prefer water.

2) Add a pinch or two of sugar, if you feel the mint is too strong and is making the raita bitter.
