The raita is a simple recipe with many variations and can become spicy,plain, sweet or savory.
Curd is the main ingredient here,traditionally curd to mix-ins ratio is 2:1,so if we are using 2 cups curd,we will add a cup of mix-ins which can include mixed vegetables, boondi, fruits (like pineapple,pomegranate) or mint.
Most common spices used in any raita is roasted jeera powder and chat masala.
