This is a fantastic little extra for any curry and takes just a few minutes from start to finish. If you are having a hot curry, you are going to thank me… Try it with a traditional biryani or any of the many other curries on the site just do a search for “curry”.
What you need
1 cup cucumber diced into small cubes
1 large onion halved and finely sliced
3 roasted garlic cloves chopped
1 1/2 cup plain yoghurt
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh mint finely chopped
Place whole garlic cloves or a whole buld in a 180 Celsius oven for about 20 minutes to roast. Do more than 1 bulb, the sweetness of the roast garlic is excellent with chicken or a good steak.
Combine garlic and youghurt in a bowl and mix well.
Add the rest of the ingredients,mix well and then season with a little salt.
You can also add a chopped fresh green chili if you are a heat freak but I prefer it just like this.
For your curries you need a good Tandoori Masala, make your own Tandoori Masala
