The raita is a simple recipe that has so many variations and can become spicy or 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 spice used in any raita is roasted jeera powder and chat masala.
Raita has many variations and you can add absolutely anything to it.Posting some of the variation in my blog….
2 cup Curds.
