READY IN: 15mins

Raita is an Indian condiment based on yogurt. It is not spicy at all, just very fresh and flavorful. From "Hands-Off Cooking" by Ann Martin Rolke.

Yummy, yummy, yummy! I liked that this raita could be enjoyed with Indian dishes, but also was great as a sandwich spread. So easy to make and I usually have all the ingredients. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
