Raita is often used to describe a condiment of Indian Subcontinent made using dahi (Yogurt) along with raw or cooked vegetables. There are many different types of Raita’s and some very common like Boondi Raita. I make a quite of them like Pudina Raita, Potato Raita, Cucumber Raita etc. We can call raita a dip which can be enjoyed with some salad’s, chips, flatbreads or some rice.
- 1 cup Dahi (Curd/Yogurt)
- 1/4 cup roasted and peeled peanuts
- 1/2 teaspoon Jeera powder
- a pinch of sugar
- 1 green chilly finely chopped (Optional)

Ligtly crush the peanuts in a mixer. Do not make a fine powder. Just 1 or 2 rounds for 3-4 secs should be enough.
Beat the dahi/Yogurt to a smooth consistency.
Mix the crushed peanuts, salt, green chilly, sugar and Jeera powder.
