Burani Raita | Burani Raita Recipe


Burani Raita

Yogurt, mildly and appropriately flavored with garlic is burani raita. Raita is basically yogurt which has been flavored or enhanced by some of the other ingredients. These ingredients could be any add-ons such as vegetables etc or flavoring agents such mint etc. Burani raita has a very peculiar and different flavor. When I tried making burani raita, following the regular burani raita recipes on the blogosphere, I never liked it. This burani raita recipe is my take on it. It has a subtle and pleasant flavor of garlic. Burani raita tastes great with pulao and biryani. However the same can be served with paratha etc too.

Ingredients for Bhurani Raita

Yogurt: Any raita recipe calls good quality yogurt. Generally, I do not prefer very thick yogurt for the raita recipes, especially, when I am adding vegetables, etc. However, this particular raita recipe calls for a thick and creamy yogurt. This is because there aren’t any add-ons in this raita.

Garlic: Generally garlic is pounded and added to yogurt to make raita. However, I never liked the rawness of garlic in yogurt. And therefore to make this raita, garlic cloves have been roasted and added. Further, the yogurt is strained. This helps to maintain the mild flavor of garlic without its sharpness in the burani raita.

Spices: A mix of cumin seeds powder, mint powder, black salt, black pepper powder and red chili powder called the dahi masala has been used to flavor this raita.

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!.
