Pudinewala Raita

This is my Punjabi friend's recipe. This recipe comes handy when my mint is overgrowing. I generally use any or all salad vegetables that I find in the pantry. But if I have some get together, I add some contrasting colors like pomegranate and boondi etc.

Pudinewala Raita
Mint Yogurt salad
1 cup plain yogurt

Grind to fine paste
3-4 sprigs of fresh mint (leaves torn)
3-4 sprigs of cilantro
1 clove garlic
2-3 green chilies (more or less per heat)
one small piece of onion
one small piece of red tomato
salt to taste

Stir in later -
red onion, finely chopped
red tomato, finely chopped
cucumber, finely chopped
boondi and fresh pomegranate seeds/DaaLimbache DaaNe

1. Whisk yogurt with green paste. Set aside.
2. Stir in vegetables or boondi/pomegranate

Note -
Any salad vegetables of your choice can be used. But do not use beetroot as it will spoil the color contrast of this raita.
