Indian-Style Raita

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

This recipe makes 2 cups and can be stored in the fridge safely for 4 days


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl garnish with mint leaves

  2. If you really want to impress someone special or are having a dinner party you can do what I have done and sprinkle a thin line of pepper, coriander, ground cumin and pepper.

  3. Store in the fridge for up to four days.
