Onion Tomato Raita

We can prepare it with ingredients easily available in the kitchen – Onion, Tomato, Green chilli and Coriander. This raita hardly takes any time except for the time taken to finely chop the veggies. Once the chopping is done, mix them with whisked curds, season it with spice powders and salt and your raita is ready in a jiffy.

  1. Always use fresh curds for making raitas. Avoid using sour curds as they do not taste well when made into raita.
