Curd-based raita is enough to level up our Indian meals. Parathas taste all the better when served with a side dish of fresh, sour and flavourful raita. Veg raita, kheera raita, aloo raita, boondi raita and more such varieties of raita can be made to suit our taste preference or as per the paratha we want to pair it with. Raita is mostly spicy, creamy or tarty. But, have you ever tasted fruity raita? If not, then you must give this anardana raita a try.
Curd is said to be good for digestion and is a great source of probiotics. Health experts advise having a bowl of curd every day. But not many people like the taste of plain curd, and that's where raita comes into play. Whipped curd mixed with other foods and spices take the flavour of curd to a whole new level, and nobody can ever deny it. This anardana raita is for people with a sweet tooth and an aversion to sour foods. The sweet taste of pomegranate mutes the tartness of curd and enhances its flavour with its fruitiness.
The combination of pomegranate and curd works like magic in this side dish. Besides curd, anar has its own health benefits to boast of. The low-fat fruit is packed with fibre and vitamin C, bringing its own gut-friendly and immunity-boosting properties to the dish. So, we think we have made it pretty clear that this anardana raita is a must-try, not just for its stellar taste but also for good health.
