Onion Raita

Onion Raita
Besides other raitas like Cucumber Raita, Coconut Raita and Spinach Raita which I will eventually add here, another good raita to bring to the table is Onion Raita. It uses the mildness of red onions and pairs it with fresh minty mint. I really do love the medley of flavors going on here and how fresh it looks and tastes. With just plain yogurt used to make it too, it’s also undoubtedly healthy.

Onion Raita

Pair it with spicy meaty dishes like Chicken Varuval, Tandoori Chicken or Chicken Vindaloo and the whole thing feels, well, balanced.

Onion Raita
While Cucumber Raita is my favorite, Onion Raita really deserves a mention. One part to note is the tempering used to add spicy undertones to whole thing; mustard seed, cumin seed and curry leaves. If you’ve never smelled curry leaves before, you’re missing out. It’s decidedly in a class of its own when it comes to aromatics. Anyway, enjoy!
