Not many and special ingredients are required to make raita. With some very basic and easily available ingredients, raita recipes can be prepared. Raita has cooling properties because it is basically yogurt served in a special way. Therefore during summers, it is a great idea to include raita in the diet.

Following points should be kept in mind to make decent raita:

  • Whisk the yogurt properly before using adding any other ingredients.
  • Use fresh yogurt, make sure the curd is not sour.
  • Adding little sugar doesn’t make the raita sweet, it just balances the flavors.
  • Check the seasoning and consistency and adjust the same before serving.
  • If raita has been prepared in advance, add salt at the time of serving otherwise the raita might turn tangy and bad.

Raita recipes can be served with parathas, biryani, rice preparations such as namkeen chawal, tamarind rice,  etc.

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!.
