Easy Raita

I used to make raita differently before until AS stared doing it his way and I loved it. It is easy and compliments the biryani perfectly or you can even have it with any other dish. This raita is very simple with cucumber, carrots and a thick Greek style yogurt.

Serves : 6


  • 1/2 small Lebanese cucumber
  • 1/2 medium carrot
  • 1/2 medium red onion
  • 2 cups of Greek Yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons of chat masala
  • 3 table spoon of finely chopped fresh coriander
  • Salt to taste


  • Grate cucumber and carrot on a coarse microplane.


  • Dice red onion into small piece.
  • In a bowl add, cucumber, carrot and onion and mix rest of the ingredients together


  • Allow the raita to chill for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to develop.


  • Garnish with fresh chopped coriander.
  • Enjoy!!!


Take care ,
