Raitas combine fruits or vegetables with yogurt to provide cooling accompaniments to spicy dishes. In the vegetarian households that traditionally serve raita, it has a double function -- it acts as a refresher and a digestive at the same time.

This is definitely a new taste for me-but a very good side with spicy food. I also used cumin powder as did the previous reviewer, since I could not find the seeds. I thought it worked well. The main flavor was mint, which makes this very cool and refreshing. Thanks!
