Mint Raisin Raitha

Mint Raisin Raitha


An excellent accompaniment to the Utsav Biriyani. The deep fried raisins was just perfect. Mint powder imparted it ‘s own flavour. I have used thick, whisked curds for that little extra touch.


Whisked very thick curds – 2 cups

Deep, golden fried raisins – 2 tablespoons

Salt to taste

Sugar – 1 teaspoon

To Grind To A Fine Paste

Grated coconut – 2 tablespoons

Chopped green chilli – 1

Chopped garlic – 1 flake

Jeera – 1/2 teaspoon

Chopped ginger – 1 teaspoon

Water – 3 tablespoons

To Garnish

Mint powder – 1 teaspoon

Black salt – 3 pinches

Golden fried raisins – little


Take a big bowl. Add the above mentioned ingredients, the ground paste and mix well. Garnish and serve with Utsav Biriyani.

Chef s  Tips

1) Soak the raisins in hot water for 20 minutes. Cover and leave it . Drain, wipe and then deep fry. They will be soft.

2) Mint powder is available in all big super markets. If you cannot find them, can use little chopped  fresh mint leaves.

3) During summer, buy mint leaves, wash, clean, wipe well and sundry till crisp. Store in an airtight container and use whenever you want.

4) Use a nice big towel to dry the mint leaves.
