    kiwidutch's Note:

    Another adapted recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks: Step-by-step cookery series " Salads and Summer dishes". I like this because there's no mint, no tomato like in many other raita recipes and the addition of chili powder gives it extra zing. Cooking time includes 30 minutes chilling time. ZWT REGION: India.

      This has become my "go to" raita when I want to make Indian at home - I nuke some frozen malai kofta, spoon out some mango chutney, whip up this raita and throw a paratha in the skillet... And I have a delicious Indian dinner in about 10 minutes - less time than it would take me to go get take out. Can't beat that!
