​Homemade Mint Raita: A Fresh and Creamy Indian Delight

​Homemade Mint Raita: A Fresh and Creamy Indian Delight

Posted by Stelios on 3rd Aug 2023

It's quite possible to purchase a mint yoghurt sauce from a shop, but those ready-made sauces often sit on the shelf, forgotten. Typically a blend of water, oil, sugar, and flavours, they might be tossed onto a meal without a second thought. There's no real passion or enthusiasm about such sauces.

This homemade mint raita, on the other hand, is infused with love and authentic flavour. With a thick creamy yoghurt base, and enhanced by garam masala and ginger, it brings a warming kick to your palate.

This classic Indian side is the perfect match for naan breads, onion pakoras, tandoori kebabs, you're customers will love it.
