Minoo also made an Indian side dish for the Indian theme at the Caring Place Community Kitchen. It is called Raita.
Raita is a yogurt sauce or dip kind of side dish. It is very similar to Greek’s tzatkiki. I guess this side dish acts as a cooling agent when you have spicy main dishes.
- 1 litre plain low fat yogurt
- 1/2 cucumber, finely diced
- a few fresh mint, finely minced
- a pinch of cumin powder
- Add diced cucumber and chopped fresh mint to the yogurt. Season with cumin, salt and pepper.
Minoo, thank you again for bringing us a simple culinary tour of the Indian cuisine.
