Raita, I suppose is an intelligent preparation invented for making the simple curd more appetizing to include with spice rich foods for offsetting the acidity that they cause. By adding cooling ingredients like cucumber or onion we are just attempting to make the soothing dish as a cooling dish as well. Apple and pomegranate is another stunning combination to make raita outlandish. I even felt minus the salt & chili, one can have it as a lovely healthy dessert.
