Cooking in summer is a test of culinary skill for us living in this part of the world where temperature raise every now and then.For that in such hot days I have to look for something that will give me a cool and fresh feeling from within. So I tried out this delicious mint dip a day before when temperature rise up to 41 degree.This mint dip  is healthy and give me a refreshed feeling in this hotty summer days.
Hope you will like it too!

Fresh mint leaves    1 small bunch
Hung yoghurt or 
Greek yoghurt        2 cups
Raisins              1/3 cups
Roasted cumin seeds  1 teaspoon
Red chilly powder and   
Salt               according to taste 
Grind mint, cumin seeds and raisins into a fine paste. Mix into the curds with salt and chilly powder. Mix well. Serve chilled.I have it with some fruits and vegetable salad and a piece of bread. You can enjoy this delicious mint dip with your bread rolls or chicken lollipops or whatever way you like it have it . It’s all yours.

Wonderful dip. It's getting quite hot where I live and this dip would be great. I might take some to the beach this weekend. Cheers!

This is a dip that I would love! VEry similar to our yogurt and cucumber dip, yet very different too, with a lot more mint and spices.

Such a flavorful dip :-)
Reg your query about oil, coconut oil gives the dish the authentic taste, but you could use the oil of your preference :-)

I really like the mint you've used in your dip. This would be perfect with barbecued lamb. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

This is perfect for spring - with vegetables over grilled meats. Resfreshing and light.
