Raitas are an indispensable part of Indian meals. They combine well with main courses and snacks that are spice heavy, but also taste great just like that! Here is a delicious raita of bottle gourd and tomatoes, perked up with mint leaves and roasted cumin seeds. Here, we have replaced full-fat curds with low-fat curds, and also used mineral-rich, cholesterol-lowering bottle gourd generously to add more volume to the raita without adding excessive calories. The Lauki Phudina Raita, with its lingering flavour is not just tasty but heart friendly too, making it a doubly welcome addition to your meal.
