Mint Raita

Served with Tandoori Chicken or most Indian dishes in fact, this side dish accompanies them perfectly.  It's great for helping to reduce the heat and calm the tastebuds while enjoying a spicy dish.

There are so many different versions of Raita - some with mint and coriander, some with mint and cucumber, some just cucumber, to name a few.  We like this nice clean flavour of plain mint with a hint of garam marsala but best of all it's very easy to make.

Mint Raita

Serves: 6
ProPoints per serve: 1

1/4 cup freshly chopped mint leaves
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/2 cup no-fat plain yoghurt
1/2 teaspoon garam masala

In a medium sized bowl place mint leaves and sprinkle with sugar.  Mix and allow to stand for 10 minutes.

Add yoghurt and garam masala and mix well until completely combined.

Refrigerate until required.
