Collection of Top Raita Recipes

Raita is an indispensable part of Indian meals . Even dishes that are self-contained in flavour such as biryani or parathas are often served with raitas. A brilliant combination of curds with veggies, fruits, herbs and/or spices, a raita adds flavour as well as lubrication to a meal. Served with rice, rotis, subzis and dals, a raita makes a meal complete!

Raita is also a wise pick on a hurried day because it can be whipped up in minutes, without any hassles. While there are common options like cucumber, pineapple or Tomato Raita , the best part about this accompaniment is that you can make it with just about any ingredient you have in stock – from grapes and apples to mint and boondi. In this article, we have showcased a selection of common as well as unusual raitas like Bhindi Raita, Boondi and Pomegranate Raita, and Strawberry and Blackgrape Raita.

Surprise your family with these amazing raitas, and surge ahead on this refreshing journey by creating your own innovative combos!

Many people are afraid of using ladies finger in a raita as they think it will get gooey. But, you will pleasantly surprised to see that it is a best-fit for raitas... you just need to know the right way of including it. Deep-fried ladies finger, when added to curds and seasoned with spice powders and black salt, results in a tongue-tickling Bhindi Raita, which is so fabulous, it might overshadow even the subzis and kadhis that are part of the main course ! Serve this Bhindi Raita immediately on preparation to enjoy the crispness of the deep-fried bhindi. Good to serve with rice delicacies like pulaos and biryanis or with just plain parathas or theplas .

While raitas are usually made with vegetables, you might perhaps have made some fruity attempts with apples or oranges. But, have you ever thought of making a Strawberry and Black Grape Raita? You must try it to believe how fantastic it is! This unusual combination of fruits transforms into a truly irresistible raita mainly due to the addition of cumin seeds powder and black salt, which help to enhance the unique flavours of the fruits while also balancing the taste at the same time.

Instead of being made as a gravy or soup, spinach is used along with boiled mixed sprouts to make a vibrantly-coloured and multi-textured raita. This scrumptious and refreshing Spinach and Mixed Sprouts Raita makes an exciting accompaniment to any meal. It also gives you the power of sprouts, including folic acid and B-complex vitamins like B1 and B2, which help in the overall development of your baby. Makes a fiting accompaniment to rotis like Multigrain Garlic Roti , Stuffed Bajra Roti , Jowar Methi Roti , Jowar Bajre Ki Roti and parathas like Green Pea Parathas and Paneer Paratha .

A rich and luscious raita with a variety of ingredients. The peppy taste of coriander and green chillies complements the crunchy feel of peanuts and coconut in the beetroot, cucumber and tomato raita, while a tempering of cumin seeds and asafoetida gives out appetising whiffs!

It feels creamy and rich, but it equally light and refreshing, giving everyone a reason to love the Kaddu ka Raita. Red pumpkin is tempered and cooked till soft, mashed and mixed with curds, and finally garnished with coriander and crushed roasted peanuts. The roasted peanut garnish is actually the icing on the cake, as it gives the raita a tremendous boost in flavour, aroma and texture.
Radish is a vegetable that we tend to associate with parathas and subzis, and rarely with raitas . Even more so, you might never have thought of combining it with fruits to make a raita! Indeed, this is a very innovative raita, one of its kind! The mild spiciness of radish together with the tang of oranges, the sourness of grapes and the mellow sweetness of apples gives the raita a range of textures and flavours, which you will thoroughly enjoy. A dash of black salt and green chillies add to the peppy taste of the Mooli and Fruit Raita, making it a true tongue-tickler!

This tangy curd preparation makes a wonderful summertime treat when served chilled. Grated lauki contributes minimal calories and also blends perfectly with the 'minty' flavour of this raita. If you are fussy about milk, this raita is an ideal meal time feast to meet your protein and calcium requirements.
