apart from garlic, the raita is spiced with roasted cumin powder, chili powder and salt. you can use either yellow chili powder or red chili powder.

this raita goes best with a rice based dish like the hyderabadi vegetable biryani, veg pulao, biryani in pressure cooker or pulaos. you can even serve it as a side dish with a mughlai or north indian vegetable dish along with rotis.

vegans can prepare the same raita with vegan yogurt like cashew yogurt or almond yogurt. raitas are excellent for summers as they are cooling in nature.
