Yummy Toothsome Raita…

Originally uploaded by Colors of My Dreams

Raita is a simple preparation made by adding fruits, vegetables or any other thing to beaten yogurt/curds. Most desi families enjoy yogurt either plain or in the form of delicious raitas as an accompaniment with lunch or dinner. Raitas are unique because they are cool and spicy at the same time. One will find so many varieties of raitas in sub-continent like Bathue Ka Raita, Boondi Raita, Fruit Raita, Ghiya Raita, Onion and Tomato Raita, Mint and Coriander Raita, Garlic Raita and Cucumber Raita.

What you see above is Onion and Tomato Raita.

Pinch of Ground Garam Masala
