Pudina Raitha

Mint or pudina is a very refreshing herb. It has a strong flavour and aroma. Pudina is an essential part of Indian cuisine. But more often than not it is added to enhance flavour and is a just a ‘herb’! In this pudina raitha it is the star, a simple accompaniment for pulao/bhaat.
This pudina raitha gets ready in a jiffy and is very tasty. It provides a refreshing and cooling effect when having a large meal.

Pudina raitha needs no introduction. It can be made in many ways in that it can be added in many forms. Finely chopped, whole leaves, torn, paste or coarsely pounded, just like how I have added in this version of pudina raitha!
Serve it with your favourite pulao like mint vegetable pulao or methi matar paneer pulao! Also try pudina dal shorbha
Try other raithas from FOI – mixed vegetable raitha, palak raitha, beetroot saasme etc…
