Raita is possibly one of the most underrated dishes in Indian cuisine. It holds a constant position in a traditional thali. Be it with biryani or dal-chawal, we love having some raita by the side. But not much is spoken about raita while discussing about an Indian thali. Ever wondered why? It might be because this dish is majorly considered an accompaniment to the main dishes. But did you know raita has more to it than just being a side dish? It is light, healthy and helps boost immunity and gut health. It is also a major source of probiotic, thanks to the yogurt used in the recipe. That's not all. You can also make it healthier by customising the recipe as per choice.
Yes, you heard us. A classic raita is made by mixing salt, cumin and some basic spices to dahi. But if you explore, you will find several other recipes that includes cucumber, vegetables, curry leaves, boondi etc. And if you like experimenting, then add lobia, pineapple, pomegranate etc to the dish. Another such unique recipe is rajma raita. Also called dahi rajma, it is a dish that mixes boiled rajma with dahi and some other spices. Sounds interesting, right? We got you the recipe too. Take a look.
