For those who are not familiar, Raita is simply a yogurt based Indian condiment often used as a side,  sauce or dip. Fruits or vegetables with yogurt and the condiment lightly tempered with spices and herbs.Sweet or savory, the Raita makes a wonderful accompaniment with grilled meat and works wonderfully as a side for a light lunch, or as a dip with crackers or flat breads.

Endlessly versatile, any kind and combination of fruits, vegetables and spices may be used to make Raita.
