Dhay or raita is a great cooling agent and it goes really well with meat and potato curries in particular. It can be made in various ways as some people will add cucumber, onions or tomatoes, however this is a simple recipe which I love and we'd have most nights growing up. Greek yogurt is the key to a lovely consistency and I remember us all being blown away when my mum started using this instead of set yoghurt - what a treat! I think my cousins called it 'luxury dhay'.
