Mint yogurt raita, mint yogurt dip, pudina raita
I had mint yogurt raita or the first time in a non-veg potluck few years ago. My share was tandoori chicken. Another friend of mine brought this yummy mint yogurt raita. Actually she did not have to bring it, still she brought it for everywhere.
I was only wondering with what dish mint yogurt raita would go well because it was just a snack potluck. There were no rice items. When I served tandoori chicken to everyone, my friend served this dip. I tasted the dip along with tandoori chicken, it was heavenly. We all thanked her for bringing this extra yummy dip. I asked her for the recipe, and she explained it to me in detail. She said I could do it with both mint and coriander leaves.
I saw the same mint yogurt raita in an indian grocery store and bought it. I made the mint yogurt raita using the store bought mint dip but the taste was not even close to what we make at home.
When my parents had come here few months back, I made this raita and they loved it so much. I always wanted to share this recipe in my blog and now here it is.
