Author Notes: Raita is a condiment which is served as sauce or dip in Indian households. The most popular Raita is made with cucumber. But, it is not limited to make it that way. In my home, we usually love onion/tomato raita , pineapple raita or pomegranate raita. There are different recipes of raita, some prefer spices or some fresh green chillies/ginger. Our family kind of likes a simple roasted cumin raita especially if it is a fruity one. PistachioDoughnut
