Phudina Dahi, Mint Dip

Another view of the hand building of a traditional boat

This is a classic cooling yoghurt accompaniment when you've got something hot and spicy. Use fresh mint where possible. Actually just a bowl of yoghurt seasoned with salt and sugar can be perfect foil to a hot curry like Pork Vindalho.


  • Lg. handful fresh mint
  • 1/2 Lg. pot plain thick yoghurt
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar


  1. Chop mint finely and mix all ingredients together
  2. Allow dip to cool for at least 1 hour before use to give flavour time to develop
