About this recipe: This is a very versatile raita, that can be used as a condiment, eaten along side rice dishes and curries. Can also be eaten on its own as a light lunch, along with samosas or pakoras. This recipe uses low fat yoghurt, however for a more luxurious raita, you can use Greek yoghurt.

  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
