Thick and creamy yogurt with the shredded coconut, with a hint of sweetness is coconut raita. I love to serve a raita with meals. My family’s favorite is boondi raita but we love to experiment. Recently I made coconut raita using the fresh coconut. It was a nice break from the regular raitas that we have. It is refreshing raita and compliments the heavy and filling meals very nicely.
Raita makes an awesome accompaniment to Indian food. The best part is that these are so simple and quick to make. Well whisked yogurt combined with seasoning and main ingredient makes raita. Raita can be made using vegetables such as kachumber raita, onion raita or using fruits such as grapes raita, pineapple raita or with stuff in the pantry such as boondi raita, bhujia raita and so on.
Yogurt: Coconut raita has a thick consistency and is creamier than the raitas in general. Therefore use thick yogurt and do not dilute it.
Fresh Coconut: I have peeled the coconut to remove the brown part. This gave me gorgeous white, soft coconut for the raita.
Seasoning: Keeping it simple I have flavored the raita with little powdered sugar and salt only. I was short of fresh mint otherwise I would have loved to add that to this raita. Further, you can add white pepper powder, cumin seeds powder, etc.
