Raitha/yogurt sauce

Here is a dish without which Biryani is not at all a complete dish as per me.. Writing this will make my mouth water for sure..

Here is a tasty recipe for Yogurt Raitha!!

2 cups thick Yogurt
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup cucumber chopped fine
3 green chillies chopped real fine
1 small carrot grated (about 3 tbsp)
1 small tomato chopped(Optional)
2 tbsp chopped cilantro leaves
salt per taste

In a bowl take the yogurt and beat it with a spoon or fork for couple of minutes. Add the salt, onions, cucumber, chillies, grated carrot, tomato and gently mix it real well. Check for salt and garnish with cilantro leaves.


A tsp of chat masala can be added to make the raitha tangy and give it a different taste.
For me I like my raitha to be thick. If you want it a little thinner add 2 tbsp of water.
Instead of chopping, Green chillies can be made into coarse paste.
Adding 4 or 5 leaves of mint chopped real fine will give a very refreshing taste to the dish.

Raitha is a side dish which goes well with all kind of Biryani's and rice items. But for me I can eat it as is like a cool summer salad :).
