aloo raita or potato raita recipe with step by step photos – simple and easy raita made with boiled potatoes.

aloo raita recipe, potato raita

i often make rice dishes like pulaos at home. so along with trying out different varieties of pulao, i also try out varieties of raita. we always prefer veg pulao or veg biryani with a raita. the norm is to make onion raita or boondi raita which are our favorites. but sometimes i skip making these raitas and try different recipes.

this aloo raita accompanies any rice based dish very well. i have kept it savory as i was serving the raita with methi rice. but then you can even add sweet imli chutney to it, sprinkle with some boondi or sev and have as a chaat snack. you can also add sugar to the raita if you want a sweet taste.

you can make this aloo raita on navratri fasting or any other fasting day also. if you don’t use red chilli powder on fasting days then skip adding it. as some people add red chilli powder on navratri fasting and some don’t.
