Radish Mint Raita

radish raita

I won’t even explain why it’s taken me so long to share this simple post, but you should enjoy this raita while you can still get fresh radishes and mint! I’ll write more stories about raita another time.

I was so excited when I had bought the first bunch of radishes this spring, that I came home and shot this polaroid!

so rad!

I used:
2 cups thick (Greek-style) yogurt
1 bunch radishes, thinly sliced (I used a tiny mandolin or you could try big shreds.)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon mint leaves, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
a couple pinches red chili powder
salt to taste

My method:
1. Toss the radish in salt & cumin, and set aside.
2. Break the lumps of yogurt and beat until it is more like a thick sauce.
3. Add everything and toss. Taste and adjust the salt.
4. Serve right away or refrigerate until serving.
