Mint Raita.........Garlicky Onion Tomato Raita


BM # 8   Day  7
Today is the last day of the BM # 8 ,of the first week.Since we had a twist this time,we could split the week into two themes.The first theme that I picked was No Fire Cooking,and the second Condiments.Well incidentally today’s post is the combination of both the themes.Today I have picked up two raitas,which are really quick ,delicious and,even a kid could do them.Raita is beaten curd wherein you mix different seasonings and either vegetables or lentil dumplings,may be nuts or fruits.I served these with a vegetable pulao.
