Yogurt Salad for Biryani

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Blue Peacock

This is the most delicious yogurt salad to serve with biryani, particularly chicken biryani. My mom's friend tried this recipe from a magazine from Kerala, India called Vanitha and sometimes I just make this to eat by itself!

I quite like this dip. I use raisins and leave out the jalapenos. I sprinkle some cumin, black pepper and red chilli powders over this and have. Love it!
