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!!

Ingredients
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

Method
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.

Variations

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 :).
