Raita is a seasoned yogurt-based salad popular in India. It’s served as a cool refreshing side dish for hot spicy foods. To make your own raita, stir plain yogurt with pinches of salt, freshly ground black pepper and cumin. Then stir in whatever combination you like of finely chopped seeded tomato, cucumber, green onion and fresh coriander.
