Indian Mint Sauce

Sharing is caring!

Make your own Indian mint sauce at home – just like you get from the Indian take away!

I just love that delicious, tangy Indian mint sauce that comes alongside my poppadoms from the Indian take-away so I thought I’d mix up my own recipe to serve alongside a homemade curry.

The mint yogurt sauce from the Indian take-away is a tasty little mix of natural yogurt, mint, coriander and just a tiny pinch of sugar and turmeric.

I like to add cucumber strips to my Indian mint sauce too – so it’s more of a minty cucumber raita.

Our Indian yogurt dish is super simple to make up and makes a delicious dip for not only eating alongside Indian food but with crudités, breadsticks or nachos too.

  • tiny pinch turmeric
