Mixed Vegetable Raita



Raita is an Indian accompaniment i.e side dish consisting of curd seasoned with Indian species and chopped veggies. It is an integral part of Indian meal and mainly served with Biryani, Pulao or Kebabs etc. Adding curd to your meal in the form of Raita is an excellent idea.
