How to Make Indian Mint Sauce
This super fast recipe will give you a classic Indian restaurant style mint sauce.
Serves 2 to 4 as a dip.
Add the yogurt to a small bowl and mix in the mint sauce.
Add the turmeric, mix and taste, add more in small amounts to your taste but don’t go mad.
Add a large pinch of salt and around a quarter of a teaspoon of sugar and again taste and adjust.
Add the ground cumin.
Mix well and store in the fridge ready for serving.
You can play around with these quantities but I found them just about right. You can also try adding chilli if you want to give it a bit of bite but for me the classic Indian mint sauce is not spicy.
