CORE Raita (Coriander & mint yoghurt)

What is Raita?

Raita is an Indian condiment based on yogurt used as a sauce or dip. Raita has a cooling effect on the palate which makes it a good foil for spicy Indian dishes.

Serves: 4

Difficulty: Easy


  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, ends trimmed, coarsely grated
  • 1 cup low fat natural yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh coriander


Use your hands to squeeze excess moisture from the cucumber.
Mix cucumber, yoghurt, mint and coriander in a medium bowl

Not on Core? The total for this recipe is 1 - 1.5 points, depending on yoghurt used
