Garlic, mint and cucumber Raita

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Raita is a refreshing fragrant yoghurt sauce that is used to accompany rice and meat dishes. Simple ingredients that pack so much flavour! You can even use as a dip with carrots and peppers. Yum!!

Here is what you will need


( This is recipe for one 500g pot of yoghurt, if you would like more raita then double ingredients)
1 pot of Greek yoghurt 500g
1 cucumber
2 cloves of garlic
1 tspn ground cumin
1 tspn salt
2 tbsn crushed dried mint leaves.
1. Put yoghurt, salt, cumins and garlic all into a bowl and mix well. 

 2. Now take cucumber and cut into half then quater, and remove the seeds from inside as this makes raita too watery.

 3. Then grate into the yoghurt.

4. Crush dry Mint between hands and add and mix well. Serve and sprinkle with pinch of ground cumin and some more crushed dry mint.
