Raita Recipe

Raita is a Indian-Pakistani-Bangladeshi sauce that literally goes with anything. You can make it in countless variations and can eat it with almost everything! 

Today, we had BBQ for dinner and instead of using steak sauce, I decided to use Raita. And it was delicious. It gave the crispy and juicy lamb a unique sweetness that will make your mouth water for more and more. :)

You can change the recipe if it doesn't suit you because Raita is one of those things that everyone has a different taste to.


You'll need: 

A pinch of Cumin 
A pinch of Ground Ginger 
A tablespoon of ground pepper
A 1/2 tablespoon- 1 tablespoon salt
A pinch og Ground Garlic
A pinch of Black Salt
1-3 Cups of Plain Yogurt
1/2  Cup of Milk or Water (If you want it to be thinner)

How to do it:

Ah, the beautiful simplicity of plain yogurt. <3

                           Mix the Cumin, Garlic, Ginger, Pepper, and the other ingredients. :)

Wait...... except Black Salt.

                          Now add in the Black Salt, so the flavor of the salt intensifies the taste of the                                                                        other ingredients.

All done, just add in some milk or water as desired.
