Top Review by French Tart

I LOVE watercress and I LOVE Raita! I made this as an alternative Raita for a curry dinner I am serving tomorrow - tasted it today and WOW! What GREAT flavours! And this is just so colourful too! It does not taste like an authentic Indian Raita, but the taste is STILL lovely - and I have posted my stars based on flavour as well as ease of following the recipe. Thanks Engrossed - just great! Made for Holiday Tag. Love it! FT:-)
