Sweet raita recipe or Meetha raita recipe with step by step photos – this sweet raita is a very simple, easy and quick raita recipe. its a basic raita recipe where beaten yogurt is flavored with Indian spices and a bit of sugar. Not overly sweet and not too spiced up, with a hint of citrus flavor coming from the coriander/cilantro leaves.

The plus point of this raita recipe is that it can also be served as a dip. I made this raita to be served as a dip for aloo tikki wraps. It can also be served with aloo tikki or ragda pattice.

As an variation you can also add ripe mango or banana. In Mumbai some chaat vendors, while serving aloo tikki or aloo tikki chole, add grated beetroot (in small quantities) and pomegranate arils to this raita.

Since this raita is on sweeter side, kids will like it. Its good to have raita during summers as yogurt is cooling for body. Yes still no signs of rains here, hence the sweet raita post.

Serve this sweet raita as a side dish for dal-rice combo or roti-sabzi combo or with aloo tikki, ragda pattice or dahi aloo tikki.
