My Notes:

  • Sprinkle chat masala powder while serving if you prefer.
  • You can add colored capsicum to make the raita even more colorful. Can even include fresh grated cucumber.
  • You can also grind chillies and add the paste to raita if you dont prefer greenchillies coming your way while eating the raita.
  • You can add 1 tbsp of chopped onions, saute it along with capsicum and add it to raita.
