Raita is a simple yoghurt sauce which accompanies things like onion bhajis or pakoras, and goes really well with biryanis.

Titli's Tips
If you are using dried mint it is better to leave the raita to stand for a couple of hours in the ‘fridge before eating it to give time for the mint to permeate the yoghurt. If using fresh mint… eat straight away!
