Masala Raita, made with curd/yogurt and with few spice powders. It’s instant and quick that can be made just a few minutes before serving.
This raita comes handy when I left with a few minutes for cooking. It perfectly pairs up with Roti, bread, any rice varieties.
For this masala raita recipe, I have added chili powder, coriander powder, roasted cumin powder and salt with curd.
If you are reading this, you are probably searching for super quick recipes, yeah you have landed on the right page. This recipe is not only instant but also healthy with the goodness of curd, and some healthy spices.
Here I have added chili powder to add color and heat to the dish. Adjust it according to your taste buds. To make this raita more healthy use nonfat yogurt. Or if it is homemade remove the creamy layer and use.
Any main course tastes great according to the side dishes served along with that. But only a few could pair with any main dish. And this masala raita tastes extremely well with naan, roti, biryani, any rice varieties like Tomato rice.
For the variations, substitute salt with black salt. Add garam masala or chaat masala. Each one of these ingredients brings out the entirely new taste and flavor. Try adding different spice powders every time you make and enjoy feeling new taste each time.
