Sharing is caring!

Mint Raita or Pudina Raita is a popular Indian style mint flavoured yogurt dip made with fresh mint leaves, curds / yogurt. It is spiced with Indian spices and makes a delicious accompaniment for biryani or even parathas

This easy and simple to make raita is made with freshly ground mint leaves along with green chilies and spice powders. Mixed in thick curds, it is best served chilled and makes a lovely accompaniment for any paratha or a spicy biryani.

I made this as part of another mega thali and it was a perfect dish to make. I am not into making different raitas as most times I settle with Onion Raita. With the theme being a Mega BM on Thali, I wanted to experiment with different raitas.
