Raita can be made from many different ingredients including: Cumin, Mustard Seeds, Cucumber, Ginger, Hot Pepper Paste, Pineapple, Onion, Carrot, Papaya, Mint and Cilantro.

The list is as varied as the many regions in which it originates.


2 Cups Plain Yogurt

Juice of 1/2 a Lemon

1 Bunch of Cilantro, chopped

1 thumb-sized piece of Ginger, minced

1 Garlic Clove, Minced

Salt & Pepper


Blend all ingredients and allow to sit (refrigerated) several hours or overnight.


Raita goes well with most curries and can really soothe the heat in spicy dishes.
