This raita is delicious. I followed the recipe carefully, only halving it because of the limited number of diners here. I did use less salt as a personal preference. I tasted the raita when it was ready, and was very happy with it. Since I tend to gild the lily, I then stirred in some chopped fresh coriander leaves and sprinkled just a little paprika on top for color. Thank you very much for posting this recipe. I think it's the one. Oh, I forgot to mention that I unilaterally decided that one slash two bird chilies meant one to two, rather than one half. I used one whole bird chili for my half recipe and didn't really notice that it was there. (However, not everyone is insensitive to heat.)
