Let’s talk about the ingredients for Aloo Raita Recipe

Well whisked yogurt and boiled potatoes cut in cubes is all needed to make aloo raita. Aloo raita is very mildly spiced. So many spices are not required. However, for slight kick dry pomegranate seeds (anaardana) powder has been added. I always use black salt in raita and salad recipes. For any raita recipe, it is important to use fresh yogurt. It should be whisked till smooth. If it is thick, little water can be added. Thick and creamy yogurt is required for the aloo raita recipe. So water should be added only if the yogurt is too thick.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
