Yoghurt in Indian cuisine

Yoghurt in Indian cuisine
© Marque Repere

Strange though it may sound, yogurt is omnipresent in Indian dishes: in marinades to soften meat, in sauces for its creaminess and acidic taste, drinks like lassi, and even in bread (naan bread is yogurt based). 

Yogurt is also used to make raïta, a chilled cucumber and mint salad eaten as a starter or with naan. Use creamy natural yogurt, which doesn't make your recipe too watery.

So if you've got a multipack of yogurts appraoching their use-by date in your fridge, use them in place of fatty cream in your curries.
