the recipe is simple. i usually grind the mint leaves and add to the raita. this gives a really good flavor of the mint leaves. if short of time, you can just finely chop the mint leaves and add.

a similar recipe is this mint coriander raita and this mint chutney. both go very well with tandoori or baked indian starters or snacks. i served this mint raita with amritsari paneer tikka.
