Based on the last review, I KNEW I just HAD to make this raita too! Eat ALOT of curry, lot of raita too! DEFINATELY the cayenne (used hot) provides that kick, but is totally delish with Restaurant-Style Tandoori Chicken in the Oven! Recipe #327824 TRUE! THANKS!

We eat a lot of raita with curry and this one was excellent. I couldn't find my cayenne so used half a teaspoon of Kashmiri chilli powder instead. It gave it the slight pinkish tinge you see in the photo, but worked well.
