onion raita recipe

this raita is doubly cooling as both yogurt and onions are good for summers. onions are specially eaten to beat the ‘loo‘ (hot wind) of north india.

this onion raita recipe is made with just a few ingredients. on days when i do not have cucumber or tomatoes, i make this onion raita to go with our meals. pulao and biryani are usually served with an accompanying raita.

this recipe is a variation of the onion-tomato raita. i always add raw onions to the raita. the onions we get here are not pungent or strongly flavored. if you cannot tolerate the pungency of the onions, then just saute the onions in a bit of oil till they soften and then add them to the raita. you can also use the sweeter variety of onions.

i usually make raitas non spicy. this onion raita is spiced with ground cumin and black pepper. if you want a spicy raita with a touch of heat, then add chopped green chilies or red chili powder. instead of coriander leaves, you can also use mint leaves.

onion raita is best served with pulaopeas pulaoveg biryani, kashmiri pulao or biryani or even with roti-sabzi or dal-rice.

  1. Onion raita is my favourite accompaniment for biryani and spicy curries 🙂 Is that stuffed capsicum in the background? It looks so good. Please share that recipe too.
