Cucumber Tomato Raita Recipe, Indian Raita Recipes - Edible Garden

In almost 6 years of food blogging, I have not shared a single Raita Recipe. That really is quite unbelievable
because I make different types of raita almost every weekend. Its a quick dish to put together and raita
compliments both rice and roti based meals beautifully.
While the basis of every Raita Recipe is the same, there are so many different ways you can make an
Indian-style Raita. I follow a very basic Raita Recipe with a couple of vegetables thrown in along with some
spices to jazz it up a bit. The result is a deliciously simple Raita that compliments both rice and roti / chapati
equally. Add a Raita to your menu when you are entertaining. Its an easy way to add more avour, variety
and an extra dish to your meal with minimum effort.
Raita is best served with spicy Indian dishes like dum biryani, vegetable tawa pulao, nan and butter chicken,
etc.

2. Add salt and beat well to incorporate.

3. Throw in the chopped vegetables, green chillies, and the chaat masala. Mix well to combine. Garnish with
the chopped coriander and cumin seeds. Serve immediately.

Its best to assemble the raita just before you are going to serve it. What I normall do is to chop and mix all
the vegetables and refrigerate it without adding salt. Then later, when its time to serve, I just throw the raita
together and take it out pretending like I just made the entire thing! Try it, it works like a charm and you have
fresh tasting Raita each time.

Note: I use the thin, small, Japanese cucumber for Raita. Its very widely available in Singapore and tastes
delicious in salads and Raita.
You can use Greek Yogurt for a thicker consistency for the raita. Adjust water : curd ratio according to your
preference.

Nags you`ve changed the blog colours again.its lovely! Raita looks creamy that I could simply
spoon out some right now. I love boondhi on top to give it that extra crunch. I do exactly the
same thing prep up the raita before abnd store it closed tight with cling lm.
