Raita / Yogurt and Vegetable Salad

RAITA ~ Yogurt-based mildly-spiced salad

An extremely simple but unparalleled side to any spicy / full-of-flavor mixed rice dish like biriyanis, tomato rice, etc! It perfectly compliments the spices in the main dish with its tangy and mild yogurt-base.

Serves: 2 – 3


  1. Chopped vegetables of your choice (cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, carrots are all good choices – I prefer the cucumber & tomato combination personally) – 1 cup
  2. Plain yogurt /  curd – 1 cup
  3. Roasted Cumin / Jeera powder – 1 tsp or to taste (optional)
  4. Chopped green chilies – 2 or 3
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Chopped coriander leaves for garnishing


  1. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and mix well. Add water, if needed, to adjust the consistency of the raita to your preference.
  2. Sprinkle some cumin powder for garnishing.

Serve chilled!
