Pudina Raita Recipe – Disclaimer: Due to some technical difficulties I am not being able to upload videos on youtube. But as they say… “the show must go on!”… here we go
Yes… this pudina raita has a preparation time of 90 days. Am sure you must have guessed why and how?!
I prepared it using mint grown at home by Amy to be precise.
(Unedited/no filters, homemade I mean homegrown mint)
I have always been making raita… but I have always used mint to garnish the raita. This recipe infused the curd with lots of mint making it absolutely refreshing.
You can also use the Pudina Raita as the base and add boondi/vegetables to it.
My house helps Rani helped Amy to plant mint. Days passed and finally, we had lots of mints. I wanted to use it for something where it would rule. I thought of mint rice but then ended up making mint raita. And believe me using mint leaves grown at home made a lot of difference.
But Amy refused to eat it. Yes, she did not eat. She said I can’t eat something I had grown. I didn’t know how to react to this. I just hugged her and said the “always and very much in vogue” “awwww”.
