Hmm, it was nothing like the texture of any other chutney I have had. Chutneys are usually like jam. This was fresh.

That sounds familiar. It tasted like there was both cilantro and mint in it. Funny, I dislike both cilantro and mint, but this, in small doses, was pretty good.

Raita seems to have yogourt and this definitely didn't have yogourt. The other sauce was mostly yogourt.

Raita is a yogurt sauce. Easy to make.

Raita

1 Ea Seedless Cucumber
1-2 Tb Mint, minced
1 tsp Ground Cumin
tsp Cayenne Pepper
TT Salt and Black Pepper
2 C Yogurt

Peel and seed the cucumber. Grate it using the coarse holes on a grater. Place the grated cucumber into a strainer over a bowl and leave it to drain for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes, press the cucumber gently in the strainer to remove more water.


Combine all the ingredients and refrigerate for an hour to allow the flavors to bloom.

that's a good basic one, andy. but there are dozens of types of raita, from spicy, to veggie, to fruity.

they all include yogurt, though.
