Zucchini and tomato raita

Zucchini yoghurt mint

A cooling yoghurt salad full of tender zucchini and juicy tomatoes makes for a great accompaniment to your main meal or even a light meal on its own.

Serves 3 – 4


  • 3 cups yoghurt
  • 1 small zucchini, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 mint leaves, finely chopped
  • A big pinch of red chilli flakes
  • A big pinch of chat masala

Preparation Method

  1. In a bowl, whisk the yoghurt well to remove any lumps. Make sure to use thick yogurt for best results.

  3. Garnish with mint leaves, red chilli flakes and chat masala.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.


Replace mint leaves with fresh coriander leaves if that’s what you prefer.
