Onion – Tomato Raita Recipe

onion raita recipe

Raitas are a great accompaniment for khichdi, biryani and pulaos. They are so soothing to the taste buds and have a cooking effect as they cut the heat from spicy food. For those who are not familiar with raita, it is a yogurt preparation containing different veggies or fruits, seasoned with salt and sugar and sometimes tempered.

Today I’m sharing the recipe of onion and tomato raita. I tempered it with curry leaves and red chili. It was chilled, sweet and delicious.

This is a recipe for 4. Let us see how to make onion-tomato recipe. For the purpose of measurement 1 cup = 250 ml.

NOTE: Sprinkling red chili powder over the raita rather than directly adding to the hot oil ensures that the red chili powder won’t burn.
