The ‘Cilantro & Mint’ combination can be very addictive, full of flavor and freshness. Try this Cilantro and Mint Raita and you’ll wonder if you are eating the Raita with the Biryani or the Biryani with the Raita. Between us, we think they were ‘made for each other’…

Fresh Mint Leaves (no stalks) – handful
Yogurt/Curd – 1 Cup, well beaten
