Zouk Recipe: Mint Sauce

Ever cook a dish and think it’s just missing that one thing, that one ingredient, sauce or dressing that would make it go from a solid 9 t a perfect 10/10 dish? Ever thought that one thing might be mint sauce? If you eat Indian/Pakistani food a lot, you may already know that mint sauce is a commonly used dressing/dip, that perfectly complements a lot of both spicy and non-spicy dishes. The only thing is, is how do you get the same flavour sauce as what you get in restaurants? Sure you can buy it already made up from the supermarket, but that doesn’t quite do the sauce justice.
