Ingredients for Ginger Mint Raita

  • 1 large or 2 medium-sized onions (chopped into bite sizes)
  • 5 cups of fresh yogurt (chilled)
  • Half tsp ground and roasted cumin (jeera)
  • 2 small tomatoes (deseeded and cut into thick pieces)
  • 3 green chilies (sliced open and seeds removed)
  • 1 inch-sized ginger piece (peeled and cut)
  • 2 pinches of salt or some more for seasoning
  • 15-20 mint (pudina) leaves (picked)

How to prepare the Ginger Mint Raita

  1. Beat the curd or yogurt with salt until it evens out.
  2. Crush the ginger piece and mint leaves inside a jar with your hands. Add 2 tbsp of water and then filter it through a sieve while drizzling the juice over the yogurt. Press the ginger and mint tightly inside your fist to get the last few droplets of flavorful juice.
  3. Slice up the vegetables for this Raita and toss them in. Mix until the yogurt covers them evenly.
  4. For the final garnish, top it with a dash of cumin powder or 2-3 leaves of mint(pudina).
  5. The Ginger Mint Raita is ready to serve.
  6. If you are not a foodie, eating extra spicy food can upset your gut. For those occasional bouts of hunger when you just can’t say no to a friend or your wife, use a Ginger Mint Raita to assist with your digestion as it lightens up those spicy and heated flavors.
