Raita is a side dish which serves with pulao or biryani. For this recipe, you have to mix the chopped vegetables with whipped yogurt and spices. In raita, yogurt may be seasoned with roasted cumin, black salt, chaat masala, black pepper, red chili, mint powder, and other herbs too. There are so many variations available in raita or yogurt like boondi raita, cucumber raita, anar raita, vegetable raita, mooli raita and more. We always prefer to add milk in curd to adjust the thickness which makes raita creamy and delicious more instead of adding water.
