3 Way Raita – Delicious Side Dish Recipe

Raita is a typical Indian condiment prepared from yogurt (Dahi), combined together with a mixture of vegetables, fruits, and spices, and generally served as a side dish to help cool the heat of aromatic Indian Cuisine.

Raita can be eaten with curries, vegetable dishes, and Naan/chapatis/paranthas. It just adds an extra touch of flavor and keeps your mouth refreshing while eating. The best part of making raita is that you can make it in seconds. Add your favorite veggies and throw in some spices and Voila!

Well in today’s recipe there is not only just one but three variations of raita that you can make with easily available ingredients in your kitchen.

The first recipe is for Cumin Raita. Roasted Cumin seed powder plays a crucial part in the recipe and lends handsome piquancy to the raita! The second recipe is Cucumber Raita. You must have often made Bottle Gourd raita, and trust me it is a bit more tedious, whereas cucumber raita can be made by just grating a cucumber and pouring it directly into the yogurt. It is absolutely refreshing and will be a great accompaniment to your main course.

The last but not the least variety of Raita that I have for you is fruity enough. Pomegranate is added to yogurt with amazing spices and each bite is simply a party of flavors on your palate!

Interesting isn’t it?

Well, let’s get started with the recipe!
