Simple and Soothing Raita
Raita is a condiment that is used to sooth the effect of spices on the palette be it Biryani's or curries. Raita can be made in "n" ways, varies from region to region in India and also depends on what it is served with. Made Pulav over the weekend and made raita the way I originally learnt from my mom.
1 cup yogurt/curd/perugu
1/2 cup finely chopped red onions
pinch of black salt/rock salt
1/2 tsp regular salt
pinch of black pepper
1. Beat yogurt/curd add onions and rest of the ingredients and mix well.
2. Taste and adjust salt.
You can cucumber,tomatoes if you choose too. Serve with pulav/biryani or choice of spicy curries.
