Yogurt infused with mint is pudina raita. It is very refreshing and has a cooling effect, just perfect for summers. However, I even relish it during winters with hot stuffed parathas etc. Mint raita has a hint of cumin seeds powder and black pepper powder, which enhance the taste of mint. Mint raita can be served with parathas, pulao etc.
Well whisked fresh yogurt is required to make pudina raita. In order to boost mint flavor, I have used lots of mint leaves and pureed them with a little yogurt. You can also add sugar for slight sweetness. I prefer to use black salt for my raita recipes instead of regular table salt. Chill pudina raita before serving.
1. Take 1/2 cup mint leaves. Well, I added this step only to show our mint leaves properly. Those come from my kitchen garden.
2. Grind 1/2 cup mint leaves with 2 tbsp curd.
3. Add this to the whisked curd.
4. Add black salt and 1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder.
5. Mix everything.
6. Bon appétit
