Serve an authentic, cooling raita alongside your next spicy Indian curry. We've loads of raita recipes, including mint raita, cucumber raita and more.
This cucumber raita is flavoured with fresh mint, fresh coriander and a touch of ground cumin. You'll be making this often!
I like to serve this cool, refreshing raita with my Lamb Tagine, which you can find on this site. Make the salad early in the day and keep in the refrigerator to let the flavours blend and intensify. Add more mint to taste, but do not substitute dried mint; the flavour is just not the same.
A biryani consists of curried meat, poultry, fish or vegetables combined with basmati rice to make a complete meal. Here a turkey curry is layered with the rice and baked, then served with a fresh cucumber raita.
Serve this mint, green chilli and coriander raita dip alongside kebabs, curries or samosas to notch up the flavour.
This is lovely served as an accompniment to curries or can also be served as a dip!
