Burhani Raita is a nice and masaledar Hyderabadi raita, which combines the pungency of garlic with the aroma of coriander and the flavour of popular spice powders. The Burhani Raita is super easy to make – you just need to whisk the curds and mix in the remaining ingredients – but it tastes special. It tastes best when served chill.

The Palak Raita with Onions and Tomatoes is a vibrant gastronomic treat, that is visually very appealing too. The bowl features a splash of colours like green and red, and a burst of flavours from black salt, onions and tomatoes. The raita is so simple to make, yet tastes very refreshing. It has no masala powders, but the tinge of black salt works well with the onions and tomatoes to boost the flavour of the palak raita. Onions also give it an exciting crunch, while tomatoes share their tanginess. Serve this awesome raita chilled. 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 .

Mint works it magic once again, leaving the diners spellbound with this flavourful and aromatic raita. The Mint Raita features an ideal combination of flavours including the peppiness of mint, the soothing tanginess of curds and the mild spiciness of cumin. A spoonful of sugar helps to highlight all the flavours, making this tongue-tickler an all-time hit.
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!

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.
First things first, this Spinach Raita is a pleasure to look at – with vibrant green shreds of spinach dotting sparkling white curds. The very appearance tempts you to taste it, while the punchy taste of black salt makes you fall in love with. This flavourful Spinach Raita is a great dish for athletes and those aiming to lose weight. While spinach gives you loads of nutrients, curd does its bit by giving you calcium, protein and essential probiotics. It is one of the best foods you can have for general health and weight loss. Interestingly, we have used full-fat curds because it has more protein and sugar than leaner versions, making it good for our purpose. Serve with parathas like Masala Paratha or Stuffed Soya Paratha or as a side dish to any Indian main course.
