Raita is traditionally served with a hot curry to take away the burning sensation. I don’t usually eat really hot curries but I do love a mild-to-medium heat range. (Well, really, if I’m to be honest, a mild one, I am something of a wussy when it comes to chilli heat!) Although I have always wondered, if it cools the heat on the way down, does it also cool the heat when it comes out the other end?!
But seriously, a spoonful of this Indian-Style Raita on top of a beautifully spiced curry is a true taste sensation. Give it a go! I don’t even like Greek Yoghurt but I do when its made into a sauce like this.
This is the Indian version of the traditional Greek Tzatziki
